Dr. David Samadi Spreads Information About Prostate Cancer

As Dr. David Samadi points out, a number of high-profile people in politics have revealed in recent years that they had prostate cancer. The latest to do so was Mitt Romney, who ran for US President five years ago. He is expected to run for an open US Senate seat in Utah in the midterms which meant getting health history out there before he announced his candidacy.

Another prominent person was Colin Powell who served as Secretary of State for President George W Bush. He revealed his prostate cancer in 2003. Another former presidential candidate, John Kerry, also said that he had been treated for prostate cancer in 2002.

Around 165,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018 according to the American Cancer Society. This is usually diagnosed in older men, past age 65. Men over 40 are also at risk and not too many men are diagnosed with it before they reach the age of 40.

Dr. David Samadi says that men who have prostate cancer have a choice between radiation and surgery. He thinks that in the vast majority of cases radiation will provide the better outcome. He points to a number of studies where men who had their cancer confined to prostate should have surgery. He also said that twice as many men will die of this disease if they are treated with radiation rather than having it operated on.

Graduating from the Memorial Sloan Cancer Center in 2002, Dr. David Samadi has years of experience as an oncologist. Before that he was a surgeon as well, including from 19909 to 1994 when he volunteered in the Stony Brook Hospital emergency room. He now works at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. He is this hospital’s Chairman of Urology. He is also the Chief of Robotic Surgery and has treated thousands of patients.

As a nationally recognized surgeon, Dr. David Samadi appeared on the Fox News Channel as a Medical Consultant from June 2009 until recently. He hosted a call-in show called Sunday Housecall, as well. He now has a radio call-in show where he talks to callers about their medical issues and otherwise explains general medicine to his listeners. He is a member of two professional organizations, the American Medical Association and the American Urological Association.
