Prostate cancer - watch out for yourself!

Over the past year, our lawyers have become involved with a number of failures to diagnose and properly treat prostate cancer cases. Regrettably, we have recently seen an increasing number of treating physicians failing to properly pick up the signs of possible prostate cancer. These cases have opened our eyes to the need for the patient to be alert to the serious dangers of this common disease not diagnosed and treated early. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men following only skin cancer. Most men have a less aggressive form of the disease but about 20% have an aggressive form with requires prompt treatment for a cure. The only way to definitively diagnose cancer and its aggressiveness is a prostate biopsy. Although not without its own risks, a biopsy is typically done by a urologist who specializes in cancer of the prostate.
