September is prostate cancer awareness month & Dr. David Samadi emphasizes on the importance of understanding, knowledge & getting tested early for this deadly disease which is the second leading cause of death in American men claiming over 27,000 lives.

Prostate cancer is called a silent killer as there are no symptoms. Getting a PSA test can be lifesaving especially for African American men who are at a 29% higher fatality risk compared to Caucasian men. Prostate cancer was also found to be more aggressive in African American men and 64% of them were found to have the disease.

Dr. Samadi recommends getting a baseline PSA at the age of 40 & getting a second opinion from a Urologist. In the hands of an experienced surgeon, early stage prostate cancer can be cured.
