Talks/Lectures, Health & Wellness/Nutrition, Community Event
Panel Speakers: Dr. Juno Choe, Tri-Cities Cancer; Dr. Patrick Gavin, Kadlec Clinic; Dr. Kenneth Berger, Lourdes Health; and Dr. Ahmad Fora, Trios Medical Group The American Cancer Society went on record 25 yrs ago with the recommendation that all men 50 yrs of age and older get a yearly screening for prostate cancer. This included both a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. Since then, their recommendation has changed four times. Additionally, the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) went on record in 2012 as recommending against prostate cancer screening. They are now in the process of updating this recommendation. Our panel of physician specialists who diagnose and treat prostate cancer would like to share with you a discussion regarding the advantages and shortcomings of prostate cancer screening.
