Hi Pan,

I'm not sure what the clinical recommendations are where you're at, but here in the U.S., men aren't screened for prostate cancer or abnormalities until they're much older (40, at least). You can read more about that here: https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/prostate/bas ... eening.htm

But if you're concerned about it, you can always ask your doctor about it. Every doctor should tell you what they're going to do before they do it, so you can always ask questions and bring up your concerns then.
