Men and Cancer

Hosted by Robert A. Somer, MD

One out of every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.  It is the leading cancer for men in the United States, followed by lung and then colorectal cancer.  Early detection can make a difference.

If you are concerned about prostate, colon or lung cancer in men, this is your opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how to reduce your risk. 

Prostate cancer affects  about one in six men in the U.S.  Recently, the value of one of the most common screening studies for the prostate cancer, the PSA test, has come into question. Find out more about the importance of the PSA, and other cancer screening tests for men with one of Cooper’s leading cancer experts, Dr. Robert Somer.
