As yet another summer comes to a conclusion, the arrival of the month of September means many different things to many different people. It can mean the beginning of another school year, as parents watch their children tackle another semester’s worth of academic challenges and successes. It could mean the long-awaited arrival of everything pumpkin spice and of putting away the swimsuits and shorts and replacing them with cozy sweaters and jackets. But for many, especially those in the medical profession, the month of September signifies additional awareness of the dangers of prostate cancer.
According to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, prostate cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst men living in the United States? In fact, a man will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in this country once every three minutes. Fortunately, prostate cancer is 100% treatable, but only if it is detected early. That’s why your personal commitment to become knowledgeable of the signs of prostate cancer all September long could save a life.
The Bond Clinic has two board-certified urologists that daily lead the charge to combat the debilitating consequences of prostate cancer. Dr. Kevin Lee, MD FACS, is a Diplomat of the American Board of Urology and has been with the Bond Clinic since 2015. Claudio Romero, MD, also a Diplomat of the American Board of Urology, specializes in the treatment of kidney stones, urinary incontinence, and cancer of the kidneys, bladder, prostate, and testicles. We are grateful for the efforts these two exceptional doctors constantly make for our patients and their families; through their dedication, we are able to fight this disease effectively with unmatched knowledge and innovation.
While fall is the perfect time of year for apple picking and exploring the ever-changing colors of the stunning foliage, September is also an ideal time to take an active stance in protecting the precious gift that is our health. Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is about being aware and informed not just during September, but taking that knowledge and sustaining it for the remainder of the year and for many years to come. Trust your expert team at the Bond Clinic to arm you with the information to protect you and your loved ones from the dreaded illness that is prostate cancer.
