Free Men's Health Forum to Focus on Prostate Cancer Sept. 26

09/13/12

Prostate SeminarSept2012Do you know that one in six men will face prostate cancer and that prostate cancer will account for 25 percent of all new male cancers in 2012? This translates to 241,740 new diagnoses in the next year alone. These statistics may be dismaying, but the outlook for men with prostate cancer is better than ever, especially when found early.

 

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and to bring attention to the illness, Crouse Hospital and Associated Medical Professionals (AMP) will present three of central New York’s leading prostate experts on Wednesday, Sept. 26 in a free community health forum about prostate cancer. David Albala, MD; chief of urology at Crouse and a partner in AMP, will be joined by urologist Herbert James, MD, and radiation oncologist Neil Mariados, MD, in a discussion on the latest diagnosis and treatment options for prostate cancer.

 

The event, free and open to the public, will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Free parking is available in the Marley and Crouse Hospital garages. Pre-registration is required by calling 315/472-2464.

 

The panel will discuss signs, symptoms, screening methods and treatment of prostate cancer, as well as latest advancements in surgical, non-surgical and minimally invasive robotic surgery treatments.
