WESTMONT, Ill., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago Prostate Center, the country's only free-standing healthcare facility dedicated strictly to the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, has unveiled a helpful new website for men and their families. The site (http://www.prostateimplant.com) was created to inform patients exploring their options and for those who are interested in learning more about brachytherapy (radioactive seed implantation). The Chicago Prostate Center specializes in brachytherapy treatment.
"One in six men today will be diagnosed with prostate cancer," medical director Dr. Brian Moran explains. "Due to early detection and screening, we are diagnosing patients at a much younger age. Since this is not a problem that is going away any time soon, we need to educate men of all ages."
The new website includes information on an advanced biopsy technique, as well as tools to help newly diagnosed patients make an educated decision about treatment. It features common myths about prostate cancer, testimonials from patients of varying ages, frequently-asked questions, a virtual tour of the state-of-the-art center and many more resources.
Chicago Prostate Cancer, located in Westmont, IL, specializes in the evaluation, appropriate opinions and state-of-the-art treatment for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. The center also houses the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago, a not-for-profit organization that conducts ongoing research intended to improve the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. For more information, call 630.654-2515.
