Prostate Cancer

Larry E Smith MD FACP, 5116 Northwind Blvd, Valdosta, GA 31605, 229 261 9500


Prostate cancer is the second most common reason why men die from cancer. 13% of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Yet, the mortality rate is very low with only 2.5% of men dying from prostate cancer with a median age of 80. The diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer is associated with significant morbidity and it is now recommended that screening should be optional after a discussion of the risk and benefits with your doctor. Prostate cancer is disproportionately more common in African-American men with diagnosis at an earlier age and with more advanced disease.
