Prostate cancer screening: this test checks for warning signs of prostate cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends for men to start getting tested at the age of 50.

Diabetes Screening: is a test to check for high blood sugar. The American Diabetes Association recommends for men to be tested at age 45 then every 3 years there after.
