September 22, 2011 (Baltimore, MD)—Franklin Square Hospital Center will host a free community seminar on prostate cancer on Thursday, September 29 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness month. And there’s a good reason to keep this type of cancer top of mind. According to the American Cancer Society, one in six men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime. The disease is the second-leading cause of cancer death in men and the second most common type of cancer in men (after skin cancer). The good news is, when found early, prostate cancer can be treated effectively.
There’s more good news to share, says David Perry, MD, Chief of Radiation Oncology and Director of the CyberKnife Program at Franklin Square Hospital Center. Advanced technologies offer multiple ways to fight prostate cancer.
Dr. Perry will explain the various treatment options, including CyberKnife®, at the seminar, which will be held at the hospital. The event is free, but space is limited and registration is required. To register, call 443-777-7900.
