Digital Rectal Exam (DRE)

DRE stands for digital rectal exam. The physician will insert a gloved and lubricated finger into the rectum, feeling the size and shape of the prostate. Cancer usually presents itself as a lump, hard and irregularly shaped. This process may feel uncomfortable but is not painful. This 10-15 second test can save your life.


“Ask yourself, would you do a 10 second test for 10 more years of your life?”
