Protecting Men from Prostate Cancer
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Prostate cancer is a disease that affects 1 out of every 6 men. Early prostate cancer detection and treatment can mean the difference between life and death. The good news from Dr. David Samadi, Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive at Surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, is that he’s able to provide invaluable recommendations and guidance about prostate cancer screening and treatment. The average age of men with prostate cancer is 69, but there are several other factors (including genetic history and ethnicity) that can contribute to the likelihood of men developing this disease.
