Protect Your Prostate: Get the Facts

| Comments (0)

By Laura Nathan-Garner and Lora Shea, MD Anderson Staff

Is a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test the best way to screen for prostate cancer? And if my doctor finds prostate cancer, how aggressively should it be treated, if at all?

If you've read recent headlines, you may be asking these questions. It's understandable. After all, about 217,730 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010, according to the American Cancer Society. So it's smart to arm yourself with knowledge about prostate cancer detection, prevention and treatment.

We recently chatted with John W. Davis, M.D., assistant professor, Department of Urology at MD Anderson and organizer of Prostate Health Conference 2010. Check out the slide-show and podcast below.

Still have questions? Post them below or on our Facebook page. We'll try to get them answered by Dr. Davis and other MD Anderson experts at Prostate Health Conference 2010 on Saturday, Sept. 11. 

We also invite you to join us at this free event. Among the topics we'll be discussing are what men at high risk for prostate cancer need to know, when to seek treatment, PIN and prostate cancer risk, and Finasteride. To learn more about Prostate Health Conference 2010, visit
