Health Matters: Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer). Overall, the lifetime risk of developing prostate cancer is: about 1 in 7. The American Cancer Society estimates this year about 161,000 people will be newly diagnosed and 26,730 will die from this disease. This morning we talk with Dr. Steven Ochs and Dr. Edward Walsh from Mercy Medical Center about prostate screening options, prostate cancer treatment and robotic prostate surgery.
