Spotting cancer early saves lives. During Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, The Christ Hospital Health Network team reminds all men about the importance of regular check-ups with their doctor and ways to lower prostate cancer risk.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in American men. It’s more likely to develop in older men and non-Hispanic Black men. It is rare for someone under 40 to be diagnosed.
“Prostate cancer can be detected early even before you may show symptoms,” said Brian Mannion, MD, medical oncologist with The Christ Hospital Physicians – Hematology & Oncology.
“Your doctor will recommend screening based on your age, health, risk factors and family history. It’s important to find out if prostate screening is right for you and to talk to your primary care provider about whether you need to be tested earlier in life.”
Prostate cancer doesn't act the same in every man - and sometimes may not even need surgery for treatment. Urology specialist Dr. Justin Cox shares why for most guys, screening starts with a simple talk with your doctor.

Some prostate cancer treatments carry a risk for developing osteoporosis and brittle bones. Learn how adding a nutritionist to your care team can fortify those bones with a food-based approach.
When something as simple as food can make positive changes in your body (and tastes delicious!) why wouldn't you eat them daily? The payoff is your health and longevity.
