Prostate Cancer - How to prevent?

At present there is a lack of evidence to support population-based screening for prostate cancer in Singapore. Individuals should seek medical attention if they have any of the above symptoms.

Currently there are no proven preventive strategies. However, adopting a healthy lifestyle can help prevent the risk of prostate cancer. This includes:

  • Eating a diet rich in fruit, vegetables and whole grains, while limiting the consumption of fat
  • Quitting or not starting smoking
  • Limiting alcohol consumption
  • Regular exercise
