Findings from J.A. Leonard and Co-Researchers Provides New Data on Prostate Cancer (Awareness of Prostate Cancer and Screening Modalities Among Long Island Men)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Weekly -- Current study results on Oncology - Prostate Cancer have been published. According to news reporting from Stony Brook, New York, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Despite advances in prostate cancer (PC) treatment and outcomes, it remains one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and the second leading cause of cancer mortality in men. Furthermore, there exist little data about patient awareness of PC and the frequency of screening."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "Adult men (470) presenting to the emergency department at a tertiary care center (Stony Brook University) between 2014 and 2015 were surveyed orally for their perceived risk of PC, awareness of PC and screening modalities, and screening history. In a population that mirrors the racial demographics of the United States, it was observed that significant disparities in awareness of PC exist among several populations including those at greatest risk."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This study revealed an important opportunity for education on PC and screening modalities among the population of men at risk."
