This is an important epidsode to share with the men in your life. September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
How does it start? How does it grow? And who’s at risk?
The prostate is the walnut-sized gland in men, located just below the bladder. Prostate cancer is marked by an uncontrolled (malignant) growth of cells in the prostate gland.
Hartford HealthCare’s Jocelyn Maminta talks with Dr. David Ahlborn, a urologist with Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute at St. Vincent's Medical Center. They discuss the risks and causes of prostate cancer and the latest advances on screening and treatment, including a recently launched multidisciplinary virtual visit program where patients can meet with all of their doctors together.
