The Prostate Cancer Primer: It's Not A Disease Just for Older Men Anymore

Overview

The impact of advances in medical technologies is beginning to reveal that Prostate Cancer is a much larger problem than the general public perceives. Newer tools for diagnosing tiny microscopic cancer cells in younger men have caused the medical community to recommend that men in their early 40's get a PSA Cancer screen with routine physical exams, instead of waiting until they are in their late 50's, only then to discover cancer is present.

Overview

The impact of advances in medical technologies is beginning to reveal that Prostate Cancer is a much larger problem than the general public perceives. Newer tools for diagnosing tiny microscopic cancer cells in younger men have caused the medical community to recommend that men in their early 40's get a PSA Cancer screen with routine physical exams, instead of waiting until they are in their late 50's, only then to discover cancer is present.

The medical community is not doing a good job of communicating that we may be heading for a pandemic if diagnosis and treatment is not routinely conducted in younger and younger men.

The Prostate Cancer Primer is the culmination of a research professor's intense effort to:

*learn about current options that are available for preventing cancer;

*suggestions for understanding what currently available treatment options their are, complete with side-effects;

*how to choose which treatment is right for today's health-conscious adult man and his family.

Oncologists and urologists interviewed for this Primer are in basic agreement that too little communication exists between the medical community and men who need to know what their prostate options are. This compilation of research is aimed at filling that void, for all men who are interested in living a healthful life.
