My husband will be turning 50 in a few months. As he enters into this new chapter of his life, a new list of things to do for health management and care come into play for him. We now have to be more mindful of proper eating habits and exercise, as well as making sure that he stays on schedule with necessary health screenings.

There are numerous health concerns that I have for him. However, the health concern that makes me the most nervous is prostate cancer. Although there are people in his family background who have succumbed to other forms of cancer, there have also been men in his family that have developed prostate cancer in their later years. I want us both to do all that we can to minimize his risk for cancer as much as possible.

One of the primary ways to do this is through early detection for proper treatment. When it comes to prostate cancer, Prolaris is a genetic test for prostate cancer that combines traditional risk factors with molecular assessment. Prolaris is also the only test that measures how fast prostate cancer cells are dividing. The information obtained from this test can help the doctors choose better treatment choices for men who are diagnosed with the disease.

As a wife, I understand that one of the most important roles I have to take care of my husband’s health and well-being. This means keeping track of when each and every health screening is due, and contacting our family physician when I suspect any health problems. I know that about 1 in 6 American men receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer in their lifetime. Heaven forbid, but if my husband does become diagnosed, I want us to have all of the information about it that we need to have more confidence in the decisions we make about his medical care. With the screening information provided by Prolaris, if time comes, we will be able to do exactly that.
