Prostate Cancer Topic Guide
Prostate Cancer: Age, race, family history, infection with STDs, high-fat diet, and chemical exposure are risk factors for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer often has no symptoms. Screening includes a digital rectal examination, PSA, and urinalysis. Treatment depends upon age, the patient's medical condition, and whether the tumor has metastasized.

Potential causes of incontinence include overactive bladder muscles, weak bladder muscles, blockage of urine flow, and nerve damage.
