What is a risk factor for prostate cancer, and this relationship may have little to do my risks of getting prostate cancer?
Age, family history: The risk of prostate cancer increases with age. It is relatively rare in men under 60. Sexual activity is not a risk factor. Family history of prostate cancer may be a risk factor for you. It's unclear whether screening tests for prostate cancer are useful for men without symptoms or family history. For men with symptoms or family history, I recommend screening. ...Read more

If you want to try arginine, don't give up on conventional treatment. ...Read more

But I don't believe there are reasons you need to take these supplements. They will not increase your"macho" power. ...Read more

This same virus effects breast Ca and men married to women with Br Ca get more prostate Ca. ...Read more
