Prostate cancer is the third most common type of cancer, affecting over 3 million men in the United States – most of them seniors. Over 90 percent of all cases are diagnosed in men over the age of 55. If you’re an aging man, prostate cancer is something you should be on the lookout for.
Dr. Austin DeRosa spoke with Senior Advisor on what seniors, and all men, should know about prostate cancer and how to keep control in a situation that can make men feel powerless.
“Most forms of prostate cancer are treatable and curable. We have many different ways of preventing prostate cancer from affecting your overall survival, but this requires PSA screening and an active ongoing relationship with a urologist,” said Dr. DeRosa.
