What Every Man (or woman who loves him) Needs to Know about Prostate Cancer – Virtual Event

September 28, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men in the U.S., with 1 in 8 men being diagnosed during his lifetime. Yet, it can be hard to diagnose because there are often no symptoms until the disease becomes more advanced. This reason is why screening for prostate cancer is so important. When the cancer is detected early, treatment is most effective.

African American men are the hardest hit by prostate cancer. This patient group has a higher risk of developing prostate cancer and dying from it.

To learn more about your risks of developing prostate cancer and the benefits of screening, attend this virtual education session. Get your questions answered by Dr. Eldra Daniels, Penn State Health family medicine physician. Dr. Daniels will review basic prostate cancer information, including information specific to African American men, and then engage in a question-and-answer segment with participants.

Screening for prostate cancer should be an individualized choice. Attend this session to arm yourself with information for better health.

This virtual session is open to men and women. There is no charge to attend. After you register, you will receive an email confirmation that includes the Zoom link to join the session.
