Dr. David Samadi discusses prostate cancer as a serious health issue for men. Over 27,000 die from it each year, making it the 2nd leading cause of death after lung cancer. Screening and detection are very important. Men need to ask for PSA test in their yearly exam, and keep a record of the scores. The scores may be normal, but must be looked at for velocity & changes over time. Frequent urination sometimes indicates an enlarged prostate gland. Prevention includes a healthy lifestyle, exercise, quit smoking, decrease alcohol consumption, maintain a diet that is low in fat and high in fiber. Samadi encourages men to get annual check up including the PSA. Prostate cancer is not a death sentence. High tech radiation and robotic surgery techniques can save lives, sexual function and continence.Views: 3667
