Prostate Cancer for 18 Year Old?
Is it likely that someone who is 18 years old to have prostate cancer if they are experiencing some slight symptoms?
It would be extremely unlikely that an 18 year old would have prostate cancer, it would much more likely they have prostatitis. Certainly if they have a strong family history of prostate cancer they should see a Urologist.
