LIVELINES: CANCER CALLS

It's one of the most common types of cancer in men. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.

Our guest this morning was Dr. Stephen Golder, the Medical Director for The Sarah Cannon Cancer Center. He says there are some key symptoms to look for, but screenings are key, because it can catch the disease early and give the patient a better chance for survival.

Symptoms

-Trouble urinating

-Blood in your urine

-Swelling in your legs

-Discomfort in the pelvic area

Dr. Golder also said African Americans are more at risk for prostate cancer, but they tend to not get screened and catch the disease later.
