Prostate Cancer & Men’s Health Edition | Primary Care Management of the Post-Prostate Cancer Patient
Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD]
Guest: Scott M. Cheney, M.D.
Except for skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in males. 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, most over the age of 65. If diagnosed early, treatment is quite effective and results in a very favorable survival rate. Several very effective treatment options are now available for patients. In this podcast, we’ll discuss the various treatments and what patients can expect following each option. We’ll review how a post-prostate cancer patient should be followed by their primary care provider and when there might be reason for concern of a recurrence. The guest for this podcast is Scott M. Cheney, M.D., a urologist from the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona.
