A Global Leader in the Fight Against Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer Canada is the leading national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the most common cancer in men through research, advocacy, education, support and awareness.

Prostate Cancer Canada invests the generous donations of Canadians towards funding research that will uncover better diagnostic and treatment options, and towards providing comprehensive education and support services for those living with and affected by prostate cancer. 

In agreement with prostate cancer experts, Prostate Cancer Canada advocates for a “smart screening” approach to early detection which takes a man’s personal risk into account, such as age, family history and ethnicity. This involves getting a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test at age 40 to establish a baseline number which is then incorporated into the man’s risk profile to determine when the next PSA test needs to occur.

  • The PSA test is a simple blood test, taken from your arm, that measures the amount of prostate antigen in your blood
  • Men should get a PSA test in their 40s to establish their baseline
  • Men at high risk for prostate cancer should talk to their doctor before age 40 about prostate cancer
