Many men struggle with the misconceptions and conflicting information on prostate cancer. Discover the risk factors for prostate cancer, its link with chronic inflammation, causes, diagnostic testing such as PSA, if and when to get a screening, the significance of the Gleason score and treatment options including the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. As a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame and New York Times best-selling author and a longtime Sports Illustrated writer, Jack McCallum will then share his story about his battle with prostate cancer and insights on what has worked for him in surviving cancer with a sense of humor intact.
Participants will then enjoy a lunch and a free raffle for copies of The Prostate Monologues.
