Many people are not aware of the fact that prostate cancer is the second biggest leading cause of death among men. It is why; it is important for the people to be aware of its symptoms and must go for health screenings regularly. When a person applies to testing, many of the underlying problems in men are identified and treated at the right time, which helps in ensuring that the issue doesn’t take a larger shape in the future. Dr. David Samadi who is the Chief of Robotic Surgery and Chairman of Urology Department at Lenox Hill Hospital feels that if men go for prostate cancer screening annually, the lives of many people can be saved. Many of the patients that Dr. David Samadi comes across on a daily basis have prostate cancer that could have been avoided, and it has become one of the leading causes of worry and concern for him. He believes that the primary reason for this happening is due to the lack of awareness among men about prostate cancer, its symptoms, and its treatment.
To do his part of creating awareness in the society about prostate cancer and help the victims, family members, and the survivors of the prostate cancer, Dr. David Samadi recently announced the launch of Prostate Cancer Support Group at the Lenox Hill Hospital. The support group would help the people living with prostate cancer to share what they feel about the disease and what they are going through, physically and mentally. Sharing their grief and concerns with survivors and patients of prostate cancer would help in relieving stress, and would also provide strength to go through the treatment with a positive mindset. Often when diagnosed with a significant disease, people get stressful and are not able to live their normal lives. However, with the help of the prostate cancer support group, many of such concerns would be addressed efficiently.
Dr. David Samadi feels that with the help of the Prostate Cancer Support Group, the importance of annual screening for prostate cancer would also be propagated among men. Many people simply ignore when it comes to health screening thinking there is nothing wrong with their body, but there just might be something that needs to be medically examined and treated. Dr. David Samadi is a celebrity doctor who often features in Fox News Channel as the medical consultant and is often seen in many of the medical based shows on Fox News.
