Annual Prostate Screenings Saves Lives
About one in every nine men will develop prostate cancer. The good news is, when caught in the early stages, prostate cancer is highly treatable. Because early-stage prostate cancer typically has no symptoms, it is very important to have an annual screening.
You and your MedStar Health doctor should discuss how and when prostate screening is best for you. Typically, annual screenings should begin at age 50. For men with a family history of cancer, African-American men, and those with other known risk factors, recommended screenings often begin at an earlier age.
David is Cancer Free After Early Detection and CyberKnife
Long-time MedStar employee, David Winfield, knew he had a higher risk of prostate cancer due to family history. Because he kept up on regular screenings, the doctors at MedStar caught his cancer early. David's team decided CyberKnife was right for him. Today, he's focused on family, guitar lessons with his brother, and thriving in a cancer-free life.
