Understanding Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer affecting men, trailing closely behind skin cancer. Thirteen percent of American men will get prostate cancer during their lifetime, and any person with a prostate is at risk.
If you wish to understand prostate cancer better and take proactive steps to reduce the risk for yourself or your loved ones, this webinar is for you. During the session, we will review the risk factors for prostate cancer and discuss both prevention and screening strategies. In addition, we will also review controversies in the use of the prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test, prostate cancer grading systems, the basics of prostate cancer treatment, and broader cancer prevention strategies.
This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants. Attend the live session or listen to the recording within one week to receive incentive points.
Instructor: Randall Stafford, MD, PhD, is director of the Program on Prevention Outcomes and Practices in the Stanford Preventive Research Center. His training includes internal medicine and epidemiology, while his research emphasizes clinical issues and health behaviors related to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
