Happy Father’s Day!

June is men’s health month and now is the time for prostate screening tests! Remind dad today. Men over 50 should be tested regularly and those with increased risk factors at age 40.The only test that can fully confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer is a biopsy.

“A man’s greatest health advocate is a woman: his mother, wife, daughter, sister,” said Dr. Samadi, “Men just don’t consider seeing their doctors for regular medical visits or taking part in preventative care the way women do. We can, and should, learn a lot from women about proper medical habits.” Dr. Samdi is a prostate cancer treatment expert.

According to Wikipedia, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men in the United States. In 2008 more than 186,000 new cases were reported and the disease resulted in 28,600 deaths. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in U.S. men after lung cancer. More than 80 percent of men will develop prostate cancer by the age of 80.

So remind dad today to have his prostate testing done soon so he can be around next Father’s Day!
