New Diagnostic Tests for Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.

Because it can be deadly, doctors routinely over-treat it, recommending a “blind” biopsy followed by surgery and radiation therapy.

This aggressive approach is done “just to be safe.”

But is it necessary? In most cases the answer is an emphatic NO.

New diagnostic tests can help doctors target men who really have prostate cancer and need treatment, rather than relying solely on PSA testing.

Special guest, Dr. Jay Cohen, joins Dr. Mike to discuss these new diagnostic tests, as well as provide information to protect you or your loved one from suffering through unnecessary treatments.
