West Chester, OH—Jan. 3, 2013—While the prostate gland remains small and silent early in most adult men’s lives, this walnut-sized gland located under the bladder can often cause problems later in life, including an enlarged prostate, prostatitis and even prostate cancer.
On January 17 and 26, the region’s leading physicians who specialize in men’s urologic disorders will speak about the prostate gland during two free community seminars. Topics will include the anatomy and purpose of the prostate, common conditions including an enlarged prostate, infections of the prostate and signs and symptoms of prostate cancer. The latest, minimally-invasive treatments for prostate cancer, including robotic surgery, will also be discussed.
WHEN: Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, 7-8:30 p.m.
The seminar will be repeated on Saturday, Jan. 26, 9 – 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: West Chester Hospital, Plaza Conference Room (Level A), 7700 University Drive, West Chester, Ohio 45069
