Prostate diseases and urologic conditions, common in middle-aged and older men, can be uncomfortable, difficult, and even frightening. They are often complex and sometimes life-changing or life-threatening. This year alone, approximately 230,000 men in the US will develop prostate cancer, ranking it as the number one cancer in men of any age. And approximately one-third of all men over 50 will someday contract prostate cancer.
It is important to note that most men over the age of 50 have some degree of benign prostate growth. It is estimated that 75% are undiagnosed and would benefit from evaluation and possible treatment or simple lifestyle changes.
