Men should get a prostate check when they are over age of 50yrs or 40yrs if they have a family history. There are a few symptoms to look out for and these symptoms are not always caused by prostate cancer, they can also be caused by other prostate-related diseases that are not cancerous such as prostate enlargement or inflammation.  

However, in the early stage of prostate cancer, there are generally no symptoms so it is better to get checked as a precaution. If you experience any of these symptoms book in to see your doctor.
