The Importance of Prostate Screenings
Z Urology knows that there are many fears and misconceptions when it comes to monitoring prostate health. The only way to detect prostate cancer, a common and often initial asymptomatic disease amongst men, is through regular screenings.
Many urologists will agree that there is some fear of patients not wanting to come and get their lab drawn and get their prostate examined. But maybe there is more to the issue. Maybe they are not even aware they should be getting screened for prostate cancer.
Many men have heard through the gossip vines, that if you get your prostate removed then there’s a good chance you will have a problem with erections in the future. But this is not always the case as far as having your prostate removed. There is a portion of men who do have problems with erections, but that rate is actually getting lower and lower.
All-in-all, there is nothing that can prevent the development of prostate cancer, so it is of monumental importance to get regular screenings.
There have been no supplements on the market that have shown effective in preventing prostate cancer. The most important thing is for every male between the age of 55 and 70 to talk with their physician about screening for prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer deaths.
Talk about getting a screening. Encourage your loved ones to go for screening. That’s an easy way to ensure you’re on top of your prostate health. For the sake of your health, book an appointment with Z Urology, and get a screening.
