New Prostrate Cancer Study - By Max Gomez, MD

Dr. Herbert Lepor is featured in segment about prostate cancer. A new study says men treated with surgery had a 25% reduction in death rate and were 60% less likely to have the cancer metastasize or spread to other parts of the body for men under 75 years old with early stage prostate cancer. The study shows there is significant benefit as far as overall survival if radical prostatectomy is chosen.
