Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, regardless of their age or ethnicity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

So for Father’s Day this year—which is June 17—why not encourage the men in your life to get tested?

Prostate cancer screening means looking for cancer before it causes symptoms. This helps to find cancer at an early stage when it may be easier to treat,” the CDC says on its website.

One such test is called the PSA test. And it’s as simple as drawing some blood. TRICARE covers prostate screening tests for men who are:
·         older than 50
·         older than 40 and had a vasectomy
·         ages 40-49 with a family history of prostate cancer

In addition to prostate cancer screenings, men should receive these remaining top six tests to stay at optimal health:

1)      Cholesterol, every five years, and yearly starting at age 35
2)      Blood sugar levels, every three years
3)      Colon cancer screening, starting at age 50; colonoscopies are recommended only once every 10 years
4)      Blood pressure, every year
5)      Digital rectal exam, starting at age 50
6)      Skin cancer screening, every 3 years age 20-40, and every year for anyone older than 40
