The “Change Your Life Challenge” is a new initiative by Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler meant to challenge and encourage people in Central Florida to commit to better health now and in the future by taking steps to ensure that health. In particular, they’re out to educate and inform the public about cancer and the importance of early detection and screenings in the fight against all forms of cancer – the more you know and understand about early detection, screenings, and symptoms, the better equipped you’ll be to be preventative. After all, the best way to beat cancer is to avoid it entirely, or to catch it early!
In the last of this four-part series of interviews, SUNNY Across Central Florida host Felix Albuerne spoke to Dr. Robert Mosca from Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center about prostate cancer and prostate cancer screenings. In particular, Dr. Mosca discussed current trends and controversy currently in the medical community regarding prostate exams and screenings of asymptomatic patients as a means of early detection or prevention. Dr. Mosca also described risk factors for prostate cancer, such as gender, age, previous history of cancer in the patient and any history of cancer in the patient’s family, and how each is an important consideration in any assessment of overall risk to the prospective patient. Finally, Dr. Mosca addressed the nature of screenings and treatment procedures for prostate cancer, and how those methods have advanced through technology in recent years.
