Ghanaian medical officer recommends testing for prostate cancer

According to a report from the Ghana News Agency last Friday, Dr. Alfred Adjei of the Volta River Authority Hospital is encouraging men aged 40 to have appropriate tests for risk of prostate cancer. Early detection enables patients to be treated effectively, before the cancer can spread, while later detection may mean that the cancer has already spread beyond the prostate gland.

Dr. Adjei appealed to women to encourage their husbands, fathers, and other men to get tested annually for this form of cancer.
