Cancer Care/Oncology November 26, 2014
November is a month that is often referred to as “Movember” as a way to help raise awareness about men’s health issues. One of the most important of these issues is prostate cancer, the most common form of cancer for American men according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).* 

But as Northwestern Medicine urologist, Joshua Meeks, MD, PhD, points out in the video below, many men do not schedule regular check-ups with their doctor, which can lead to a serious problem if prostate cancer is present and never diagnosed. This is especially important since men who develop prostate cancer rarely experience any symptoms before they are diagnosed.

Watch the video featuring Dr. Meeks, who is also a member of the Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University, to find out what else every man should know about prostate cancer.
