Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly occurring diseases in men. There is a high survival rate and living a long life with the condition is possible for many men. There are also lifestyle changes that could delay the onset of the disease and help men achieve a long health span – the number of years they enjoy optimum health. Dr. Mark Scholz is a prostate cancer specialist and a strong advocate for patient empowerment. In this LLAMA podcast interview Dr. Scholz explains why a prostate cancer diagnosis is far being a death sentence and how rapidly changing medical technology is changing the way doctors treat the disease.
