By DuPage Medical Group Urology



High-Risk Health Assessment

According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer sometime in their lifetime. While the biggest risk factors of developing prostate cancer are your age and race - other factors can also increase an individual’s risk including personal/family history of prostate and other cancers.

Be proactive about your health by taking the quiz below to help determine if you are considered high-risk for prostate cancer and could benefit from genetic testing and/or further evaluation by a physician.

Please answer yes or no to the questions below.
