Prostate Cancer Awareness
Prostate cancer is among the most common types of cancer in the U.S. As with other types of cancer, early detection is preferable. By detecting prostate cancer early and understanding their options, men can make proactive decisions for their wellness. Unfortunately, some patients must cope with the consequences of delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis, which are types of medical malpractice. By becoming better informed about prostate health, men may reduce the chances that they will suffer from the results of medical malpractice.
For example, it’s a good idea for men to ask their doctors about their risk factors of prostate cancer and to ask whether they should be screened, rather than to wait for the doctor to suggest it. Some risk factors include being 40 years old or older, being African-American, and having a family history of prostate cancer.
