For VIP Treatment, Free Prostate Screenings Can Be Life-Saving

April 09, 2013

What do Robert De Niro, Colin Powell, Nelson Mandela and Arnold Palmer have in common? Hint: It’s not a good golf game.

Turns out, the four well-known men all suffered from prostate cancer at one point in their lives. They all have since recovered and, reportedly, Arnold Palmer was even able to play golf just eight weeks after his surgery.

These famous men are not alone in their prostate cancer survivorships. In fact, one in six American men over the age of 50 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, but with early detection and proper treatment, most of those men will not suffer from this disease.

At The Urology Group, we feel so strongly about the benefits to preventative prostate care that we’ve partnered with local organizations to offer free screenings and examinations. Tomorrow, April 11, a number of our physicians will be at the Sharonville Convention Center to assist with the first of many free prostate exams and PSA screenings this year. I urge men over 40 who haven’t had their prostate checked recently to attend and be examined.

Because prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms unless it has spread outside the prostate, preventative care is particularly important. Urologists typically diagnose prostate cancer using a combination of patient history and physical exams including PSA tests. Early testing such as the PSA test has contributed to the decline in prostate cancer death rates by nearly 40 percent over the last two decades.
