Prevention and Screening for Prostate Health
Date(s) - 09/23/2021
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Stigmas, sensitives, fear, and more keep most men from talking about their health, especially prostate cancer symptoms. Let’s break the stigma together and have a conversation about prostate cancer so we can better understand and prevent prostate cancer through early detection. While more men are living with prostate cancer, not knowing if you have prostate cancer decreases your chances for survival. Why? Because prostate cancer may cause no signs or symptoms in the early stages.
In this webinar, we will address prostate cancer prevention and screening, as well as diagnosis and treatment. We will highlight who is at risk and what can be done proactively to protect the health of your prostate. Lastly, we will briefly talk about testicular cancer and how it compares to prostate cancer. Reserve your seat by registering today.
Session participants will understand:
- What the likelihood is of developing prostate cancer
- Signs and causes of prostate cancer
- What routine test or screening options exist for monitoring prostate cancer
- Available treatment options, including robotic surgery
- Difference between prostate cancer and testicular cancer
- Practices for optimal prostate health
