Early clues to know your risk of prostate cancer

What is it about?

We have identified 12 SNPs which give early clues as to whether men will develop prostate cancer or not. Understanding other non-genetic risk factors along with these SNPs will help men manage their life style and thus alleviate their anxiety of developing prostate cance.r

Why is it important?

Its time men start testing themselves for bio-markers to know their prostate cancer risk status. The inflammation you see may not necessarily be cancer.It could be just prostatitis caused by bacteria. Learn more to reduce the anxiety.
