Catch prostate cancer early with annual screenings

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and men in New York and around the country are being encouraged to undergo prostate cancer screenings. Screenings are particularly important for men between the ages of 40 and 75.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men worldwide. Overall, black men experience the highest rates of prostate cancer, and studies suggest they may also suffer from more aggressive forms of the disease. Even with treatment, prostate cancer survival rates are worse for black men than white men.

There are typically no symptoms during the early stages of prostate cancer, so it is very important to undergo screenings to detect it. As the disease progresses, men may experience erectile dysfunction, blood in the urine, incontinence and paralysis. Later stages of prostate cancer are commonly treated with hormone therapy, which can cause side effects like cardiovascular and heart problems, hot flashes, enlarged breasts and weakened bones. However, early stages of the disease could be cured through surgery and radiation. An annual blood test and rectal exam are essential to catch prostate cancer early.

Unfortunately, some cases of prostate cancer are missed by medical professionals. A New York resident who has suffered a delayed diagnosis of the disease due to a doctor's negligence may benefit by speaking with an attorney. After reviewing the details of a case, legal counsel may recommend filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent physician seeking compensation. Such a claim could bring a financial settlement for economic damages, including medical expenses and lost wages. In some cases, non-economic damages like pain and suffering and loss of consortium may also be awarded.
