Reasons Not to Fear Prostate Cancer

by Arkansas Urology on Monday, March 19, 2018

 

When you hear the words “prostate cancer,” feelings of fear can creep in. While prostate cancer can portray itself as a scare, it doesn’t have to. We know the news can seem very scary but here at Arkansas Urology, we believe that you don’t have to fear them. Prostate cancer is common and about one in nine men will be diagnosed with it. Yet, it is also one of the most treatable types of cancer today. A prostate cancer diagnosis doesn't have to be cause for panic early. Here are a few reasons not to fear prostate cancer.

1. The main reason you do not have to fear prostate cancer is that it is treatable. The five-year survival rate for men with local or regional prostate cancer is almost 100%. Arkansas Urology has state-of-the-art treatment centers and technology. We are better prepared than ever before to help you beat prostate cancer. Our doctors are board-certified and ready to walk with you through every step of the way.

2. The second reason you can have peace is that your care can be individualized to you. We have a great team of doctors who know what treatment will be best for your specific case and are ready to assist you with anything and everything you may need.

3. Early diagnosis helps to catch prostate cancer early and improve outcomes. We offer screenings to check for prostate cancer. We believe so much in treating and beating prostate cancer that we even host free screening events in the fall for men to get tested each year.

Having concerns about prostate cancer are valid, but the good news is you don’t have to be scared. Often the fear of prostate cancer does more harm to an individual than the cancer itself.
