Prostate exam: In the absence of any difficulties passing urine , there isn't a need to check for prostate enlargement. Prostate enlargement may not cause any symptoms. Staring at age 50 many physicians start screening for prostate cancer. If there's a history of it in the father or brother, screening is moved up to age 40.
