This month is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and Stanford urologic oncologists are sharing their knowledge about prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment, both online and in person. This Saturday, at a free community talk hosted by the Stanford Cancer Center, several experts will be on hand to answer questions and discuss prostate cancer screening, "watchful waiting," diagnostic advances, and treatment options. In an online Q&A and the video above, Eila Skinner, MD, chair of urology, and James Brooks, MD, chief of the urologic oncology division, and others provide more insight on the disease. And during the month of September, more information about prostate cancer, including the benefits of targeted prostate biopsy, will be offered on Twitter via @StanfordHosp.
