Did you know that prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men? And yet, it is highly treatable if detected early. Likewise, Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH), affects about 50 percent of men between the ages of 51 and 60, and up to 90 percent of men older than 90.
Why are we talking about prostate disease on a platform that is usually dedicated to women’s issues? Most of us have important men in our lives – fathers, partners, sons, brothers, uncles and friends. Their health matters to us, and it affects us in some pretty significant ways.
There’s a lot we can do to help the men in our lives live longer, healthier lives, from encouraging them to see their doctors regularly and maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine, to choosing the right treatments and exams when they have a healthcare issue.
Liberty Pacific Advanced Imaging in West Hills, California (a RadNet site) is the only clinical location on the West Coast where the TULSA-PRO System for prostate disease is available. This outpatient procedure promises to revolutionize the future for all of the men we know and love, who have been diagnosed with prostate disease.
In addition to being incision free and radiation free, the Tulsa Procedure provides minimal to no pain, a speedy recovery, as well as decreased risk of side effects common to most invasive prostate surgeries, such as urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction.
If you have concerns that your loved one is showing signs of prostate disease, including urinary frequency, urgency or urinary incontinence, among other symptoms, please urge him to see a physician.
