The SNMMI (Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) held their annual convention this year in Pennsylvania. As part of their multi-day program they have a patient education day, and I was invited by Shawn after meeting her at the Run/Walk in Harrisburg last year. I was asked to share a patient’s perspective as it relates to prostate cancer, and I decided to write a speech about fear and its impact on patients and caregivers and then share my success story from stage IV to remission.More

UCPA was proud to once again support the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s Walk to End Bladder Cancer at City Island on May 12, 2018.
UCPA encourages men ages 55 to 69 to revisit their need for Prostate Cancer Screenings with their doctors.
The prostate gland normally tends to enlarge in the vast majority of males as they age. For many men, this growth can cause symptoms later in life.
Some researchers are concerned that prostate cancer can be so slow growing that the prescribed treatment and side effects are often worse than the potential consequences of inaction. However, without a PSA test, it would be impossible to know if an early stage cancer will be slow growing or if it is a more aggressive type that can quickly become fatal if left untreated.
As urology specialists with a long and successful track record of treating prostate cancer, our doctors firmly believe that PSA screenings remain essential to managing prostate health. Only when a “normal” baseline reading has been established (preferably by the age of 50) can your doctor watch for any dramatic jump in PSA readings which could indicate the need for urgent action.More
