How big does a prostate tumor need to be before I absolutely have to get it checked out?

In brief: Check it now

If you have a prostate tumor of any size, i would recommend having it checked out.
If it is a cancer, the sooner you know it the better.

I agree with Dr. Porch. In fact, some recent studies have shown that men diagnosed with prostate cancer in smaller prostates were more likely to have high grade (more aggressive) cancers found when the prostate was removed. So, don't delay.

In brief: Prostate tumors

Your question needs to be more specific.
If your prostate is abnormal it needs to be check by a urologist.

In brief: Not big

If you have a tumor, you need to get it checked out.
It is unlikely, at your age, that you have a prostate tumor, though.
