EUGENE, Ore. -- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, other than skin cancer.

Tammy Turner with the Community Cancer Center in Roseburg says it mostly affects men over the age of 65. 

Men should be screened starting when they're 50 and should watch for any symptoms.

"If you're having any urinary issues, difficulty urinating, frequency urinating, painful urination, anything to do with your bladder, that's important to get it checked by your doctor," Turner said.

At the center, they use a state-of-the-art machine called the true beam linear accelerator that delivers radiation exactly where it's needed.
