Prostate Cancer & Health: The Truth Behind One of the Most Controversial Men’s Health Topics with Ralph Esposito
1 in 9 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. The good news? It’s not something men will likely die FROM, but will die WITH. I brought my friend Dr Ralph Esposito on the podcast because he is the first person I thought of when addressing everything prostate. November is Men’s Health Awareness Month and a large part of that is prostate related. In this episode Ralph, discusses the truths surrounding the proper testing, diagnosis and treatment when it comes to prostate cancer. Controversial topics such as testosterone and even estrogen therapy, androgen deprivation therapy, questions one should be asking, how many opinions to seek, and why having a high PSA score isn’t always something to stress out about. If you have joined the no shave November movement, if you know someone with prostate cancer or if you are a man, you will benefit from this episode!
