Why worry about my prostate health now?

“Why worry about my prostate health now?” you might ask. Some experts believe that every man will develop some degree of prostate cancer if he lives long enough. Autopsy studies have shown microscopic evidence of prostate cancer in 15-30 percent of men over the age of 50 and in 60-70 percent of men who reach age 80.

But don’t let that statistic scare you. The reality is that fewer men are dying from prostate cancer than ever before.

And the next generation’s risk is decreasing all the time. New statistics tell us that a male born today has an 11 percent chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer at some time in his life, but just a 2 to 3 percent chance of dying from the disease.

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you’ll find the 2020 Prostate Disorders White Paper to be an invaluable resource for understanding and evaluating your treatment options.

You’ll receive detailed descriptions of the three most common treatments: radical prostatectomy, external beam radiation therapy, and brachytherapy. Understand what they are, how they are performed, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

You’ll also learn whether your PSA and Gleason score make you a candidate for active surveillance so you can maintain a high quality of life without the often irreversible side effects of certain prostate cancer treatments.

You’ll learn the most common side effects of each of the prostate cancer treatments detailed in this comprehensive White Paper.

You’ll understand how doctors predict the seriousness of a cancer diagnosis, and how you can work in conjunction with your doctor to know all your options and decide which treatment is best for you.

You’ll even learn how your doctor determines the extent of your cancer, and what the treatments and prognosis are for each stage of prostate cancer.

All in the 2020 Prostate Disorders White Paper-available to order now.
