PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Given the recent controversy about which segment of the male population should be screened for prostate cancer with a PSA blood test, doctors at Cooper University Hospital are hosting a free June 12th evening seminar for men that answers this question as well as many others.
Dr. Allen Seftel, who leads Cooper University Hospital’s Division of Urology, will be speaking at the seminar.
“We’re trying to give the men a forum for some open and frank discussion. We’ll be providing them with some lectures and some of our own material. But, I think many individuals would like to hear a little bit more about prostate cancer issues, the incontinence issues, the sexual function issues,” both related and unrelated to prostate cancer treatment.
Dr. Seftel says there will be time for questions and answers during the hour and a half to two hour session.
“It gives them the opportunity to have an open and frank discussion in a very non judgmental and nice way.”
