Men get prostate exams to check if they have prostate cancer. Doctors look for hard, lumpy or abnormal areas. Men should get their first prostate exam around the age of 50, but men with a higher risk should get one earlier. Men with a higher risk or family history or prostate cancer should get this exam.
