When Pennsylvania men are diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer, surgery may be one of the treatment options they may have available. However, the results of a 20-year study shows that surgery does not offer major benefits to those who are in the early stage of the disease. In fact, the surgery often results in serious medical complications, including urinary incontinence and infection.
Pennsylvania women turning to their doctors rightly expect to receive the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on prevention and early diagnosis of ovarian cancer. According to the medical director of integrative gynecologic oncology at Providence Saint John's Health Center, however, several early warning signs often result in misdiagnosis and failure to treat the cancer. Poor understanding of risk factors and prevention may also compound the risk of doctor error.
