Prostate Cancer Awareness Month Starts in September
Date:9/2/2011

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Sept. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- What do Robert DeNiro, Hugo Chavez, Rudy Giuliani, Roger Moore, John Kerry, Don Imus, Harry Belafonte, Nelson Mandela, Colin Powell, Frank Zappa, Telly Savalas, Bill Bixby and Timothy Leary all have in common?

If your answer is prostate cancer, then you would be correct.

DeNiro, Giuliani, Kerry, Imus, Belafonte, Mandela and Powell were all diagnosed and successfully treated.  Chavez, the President of Venezuela, is in treatment and battling the disease. Unfortunately, prostate cancer claimed the lives of Zappa, Savalas, Bixby and Leary.

About 217,730 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed this year and some 32,000 men die of prostate cancer—the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer.

Nationally recognized prostate cancer specialist Dr. Bert Vorstman, an outspoken patient advocate based in Coral Springs, Florida, urges newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients to carefully review treatment options and to request a second opinion before selecting treatment.

Through his new Prostate Cancer Advocacy Help Center and his website, www.hifurx.com, patients and their spouses can access a broad spectrum of information relevant to localized prostate cancer.  In addition, there is a Hot Line, 877-783-4438, for those with newly diagnosed localized prostate cancer.

Dr. Vorstman's call to action is simple:

  • Promote Early Diagnosis
  • Promote Regular Testing
  • Empower Patients to Fully Understand Their Condition and Treatment Options
