PROSTATE AWARENESS – Be early; be proactive; plan.

INCENTIVES?

Early, consistent testing and thus early treatment of prostate disease may help men avoid a some unpleasant urinary tract difficulties and help men avoid sexual dysfunction. Early, consistent testing may also catch prostate cancer at an early stage and therefore allow the patient to avoid extended treatment or an early departure.

PLANS?

At the age of forty years men should, with their personal physician, develop a plan that will find prostate problems early. If older than forty, do not wait for symptoms to become clear. Go directly to your doctor and develop a plan.

EDUCATION?

Be proactive. Learn about the diseases associated with the prostate gland. There are a number of websites that provide  reliable information. These include Johns Hopkins, Sloan-Kettering, and the Mayo Clinic.

READ?

The three-part blog posted by Conky (that is me) is accessible in the Health Matters category of the Sentry Telecare Blog. The three posts are based on research and my personal experience with prostate cancer.

DO NOT WAIT FOR SYMPTOMS TO BECOME EVIDENT. SEE YOUR DOCTOR AND PUT A PLAN IN PLACE TODAY!!!!
