September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month focuses on raising awareness about a disease that is both common and highly treatable. Throughout the month of September, Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center is holding its seventh annual Arnold Palmer Prostate Center Community Symposium — a series of weekly lectures regarding the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. This year, the Symposium lectures are sponsored by a generous donation from the Men’s and Women’s Golf Club at the Oasis Country Club in Palm Desert.
The series is FREE and open to the public. A light lunch or dinner will be provided at many of the events. Lectures will be held at Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center and the Eisenhower George and Julia Argyros Health Center in La Quinta. To make reservations or for more information, please call 760-834-3798, unless otherwise noted.

September 30 — Treatment of Advanced Stage Prostate Cancer
According to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer found in men, and one in six men will develop it during their lifetime. This year, nearly 200,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The cause of it remains unknown; however, early detection can lead to better treatment and an increased chance of survival.
