Prostate Cancer Awareness: Screening & Treatment
Men are more likely than women to delay or avoid seeking medical care. That’s a big problem when it comes to catching and treating serious medical conditions including prostate cancer. One in 9 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and most will not have any symptoms. Regular medical check-ups and the appropriate screenings are crucial in diagnosing the disease at an early stage, when it is easiest to treat successfully.
To mark Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, host, Dr. Jonathan Fialkow welcomes Marcio Fagundes, M.D., medical director of radiation oncology at Miami Cancer Institute, to the podcast to talk about the importance of screenings and the latest advances in radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
