Also, there is not excuse for your partner to get his prostate checked starting at age 40. Yes, they do expect us endure a myriad of tests, exams and procedures to remain healthy moms, sexual mates and partners, but often times they feel they do not need these types of checkups! Wrong! They just like we do! Here is a woman’s short guide to prostate cancer:
- Understand and make prostate cancer something to talk about; share what you know with your partner, family and friends.
- Know your partner’s family history and share it with sons who are old enough and relatives.
- Recommend diets low in fat, carbohydrates, processed sugars in combination with regular exercise.
- Be sure your partner talks to his doctor about a baseline screening (PSA and DRE) at age 40 and develops a schedule of subsequent screening based on his medical history.
