The Good News: Early Diagnosis Is the Key to Curing Prostate Cancer

Movember, named after the world’s largest movement fighting for men’s health, is the time to talk about the good news concerning prostate cancer. “The key to curing prostate cancer is early diagnosis,” says Dr. Dudley Danoff, author of The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health, 2nd edition (Beyond Words, 2017). 

There are no symptoms associated with early prostate cancer. The primary tool for early detection of prostate cancer is a screening blood test, PSA (prostate-specific antigen). All men age forty and over should get a yearly screening PSA blood test, as well as a digital rectal examination by a qualified physician. Heightened public awareness, making the early diagnosis of prostate cancer easier, has resulted in an increase in effective treatment and cure.

 

“The good news is that—provided the diagnosis of prostate cancer is made early enough to allow maximal effective treatment—life after prostate cancer, surgery, or other treatment options can be full, rich, and rewarding and allow a man to be continent, sexually active, and vigorous in all areas of his life,” advises Dr. Danoff.

 

Approximately 240,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year. It is the most common male malignancy and the second most common cause of death from all tumors.

 

A requested guest on national radio and television shows, Dr. Danoff is a graduate of Princeton University and Yale University Medical School. He taught on the clinical faculty of the UCLA School of Medicine for more than twenty-five years and is the founder and president of the prestigious Cedars-Sinai Tower Urology Medical Group in Los Angeles. Urologist to many Hollywood stars and the recipient of national and international honors, Dr. Danoff is also senior attending urologist at the Saban Los Angeles Free Clinic.

 

If you need an expert on men’s health issues, including those involving sensitive subjects and tips for a healthy, active sex life at any age, Dr. Danoff is available for radio and television interviews and also has numerous articles available for your immediate use on a variety of topics, including:

 

4 Treatment Options for Prostate Cancer: A Quick Guide

 

In the last thirty years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of cases of prostate cancer detected each year. This is due to the rising median age of our population as well as our ability to detect tumors at an earlier and more curable stage. The good news is that the increase in the number of cases is being met with an increase in effective treatment. If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, depending on the aggressiveness of the cancer and other health factors, you may have a number of options.

 

Can Prostate Cancer Be Prevented?

 

Prostate cancer is one of the most serious health problems in the global community. About one in every six men in the United States will develop the disease during his lifetime. With the dramatic increase in incidence, it’s understandable to want to ask the question, how can I prevent prostate cancer? The truth is, you cannot actually prevent prostate cancer; however, with early diagnosis, you can beat the deadly potential of this disease.

 

How to Have a Terrific Sex Life after Prostate Cancer 

 

When patients learn they have prostate cancer, they often fear that impotence is inevitable. In almost all cases, fear of impotence is totally unwarranted. However, it is true that the old surgical cure for prostate cancer left 60 to 80 percent of patients impotent since surgery damaged the vital nerve bundles that make erection possible. Dr. Danoff explains that with modern advances in treatment, you can have a terrific sex life after prostate cancer.
