The Male Health Center was founded in 1989 by Dr. Kenneth A. Goldberg, a board-certified urologist. Dr. Goldberg created the center because there was a need to provide men with an integrated system of care that addressed all their needs.
Men need an Ob/Gyn doctor of their own, too
Women depend on their Ob/Gyn specialists for female problems, and learn the benefits of early detection for breast cancer through self-exams. Men, on the other hand, often ignore warning signs and symptoms until the problem becomes serious. Few men know where to go when they find a lump on a testicle or have trouble achieving an erection.
While the Ob/Gyn physician is trained to treat female problems, there is really no physician specialty trained to deal with the wide variety of problems that face the man.

Panel issues new guidelines on prostate cancer diagnosis
February 21, 2000 Web posted at: 8:58 p.m. EST (0158 GMT) BALTIMORE (CNN) A medical panel led by urological experts has issued new recommendations to help physicians confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer. The policy report issued by the American Urological Association (AUA) outlines when physicians should consider a biopsy after initial cancer screening tests are suspicious.

71. :: RCOG ::
Extensive prostate cancer treatment information including prostate cancer treatment options, prostate cancer diagnosis, cancer research, cancer information.
According to the American Cancer Society, this year alone almost 200,000 men in the United States will be newly diagnosed with prostate cancer and 40,000 men will die from this disease. If these statistics are sobering, imagine the fright at actually hearing a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Often accompanying that fear comes a sense of helplessness, of being out-of-control because men are suddenly confronted with something totally unknown. When men listen to their doctors, look on the Internet, read books or speak to friends, the situation only worsens as they learn that much of the information available about prostate cancer, especially about treatment, is conflicting and frequently inaccurate. Doctors often disagree on which treatment they believe is the most effective for prostate cancer. Typically, if you go to a urologist, that doctor will recommend a radical prostatectomy. And, if you see a radiation oncologist, that doctor will recommend some type of radiotherapy. Because of this confusion, men with prostate cancer, plus their families, need to be part of the decision-making process for treatment of this disease. In fact, the choice of treatment is one of the most important decisions a man will make during his lifetime. This web site is written to educate men and their families about prostate cancer, how it works and how to evaluate the various methods of treatment. Readers will quickly learn that cure of prostate cancer is dependent on three things: Finding prostate cancer early with a PSA test. Selecting a treatment method with a proven high cure rate. Selecting a doctor who knows how to cure prostate cancer. Readers will also learn about a very important subject never discussed by doctors: that most doctors performing seed implants are not adequately trained and should not be treating prostate cancer! Before producing this web site, we asked ourselves, "If I had prostate cancer, was not a doctor, and knew nothing about this disease, what would I want to know?" We determined we would want to: Learn about this disease, about the various treatments and, especially, about the cure rates and how they were calculated; Know how to access the medical journal references so that we could review them if we desired; Know about my doctor’s level of training and especially what his/her particular cure rates are; and Have all the cards put on the table without any hype. That is how this web site has been written. It is important to educate yourself about prostate cancer. It is also important that you are not afraid to ask hard questions of the doctors who are going to treat you. If seed implantation is discussed, ask your physician about his/her level of training and cure rates. Ask, "did you have a two-day training course?" Ask, "using PSA nadir 0.2 ng/ml, what is the cure rate of your patients who did not have hormones?" After all, if you were the manager of the Atlanta Braves or some other favorite baseball team, to evaluate a player, you would look at a baseball player’s batting average. Cure rates, calculated by PSA nadir 0.2 ng/ml, are the "batting averages" for doctors treating prostate cancer. This is not the time to be reluctant to ask for information. It is your life and the quality of that life that is at stake. Special Notes: This page contains extensive additional information on prostate cancer research and treatment not found in our brochure. You are invited to explore all the areas on this site, including the Integrated Prostate Health Program, Frequently Asked Questions, Biopsy Info and Travel pages.

In December, 1998 our report detailing the largest series of men treated with brachytherapy in the modern literature was published in The Cancer Journal. Entitled "Simultaneous Radiotherapy for Prostate Cancer: I-125 Prostate Implant Followed by External-Beam Radiation" ,this landmark article covers 1,020 patients with follow-up to 14 years. We have updated our findings on PSA nadir and have discovered that in order for men to be potentially cured of prostate cancer, they must achieve and maintian a PSA nadir of 0.2 ng/ml, the identical PSA nadir level used in most radical prostatectomy studies. Our most recent two articles detail these findings about PSA nadir. Click here to receive a copy of these reports.

These and other patients welcome the opportunity to share their stories with you. The Normal Prostate The normal prostate gland, which on average is about the size of an egg, is located in a man’s pelvis, sandwiched between the bladder, above the gland, and the rectum, below the gland. The prostate gland consists of millions of prostate cells, which are surrounded by a thin covering called the capsule, much like the shell of an egg. Lying against the prostate, on both the right and left sides, are sex nerves; and running through the middle of the gland is the urethra, the tube that goes from the bladder out a man’s penis for urination. The prostate produces semen, the material ejaculated at sexual orgasm. How Prostate Cancer Works Prostate cancer begins when, for reasons no one fully understands, one or more normal cells inside the prostate transform into cancer cells. In general, prostate cancer then enters the first of three phases of growth: Phase 1: Growth inside the prostate contained by the capsule. For a time, the transformed prostate cancer cells multiply and grow inside the prostate with growth contained by the prostate capsule. Phase 2: Penetration of the capsule and growth into the surrounding normal organs. In the second phase, cancer cells penetrate through the prostate capsule and extend into surrounding normal organs including the rectum, sex nerves, bladder, and into the muscles that control urination. These "microscopic capsule penetration" cancer cells continue to multiply. Phase 3: Spread, called metastases, by lymph and blood vessels to other parts of a man’s body. In the third and final phase of prostate cancer, microscopic capsule penetration cancer cells, or cancer cells inside the prostate, invade lymph or blood vessels. Using lymph and blood vessels as a highway, prostate cancer cells spread throughout a man’s body. Initially metastases usually go to lymph nodes and bones and later to lung, liver and other parts of the body. Finding prostate cancer early with the PSA and the Percent Free PSA test A simple blood test to see if a man has prostate cancer can be performed on a small amount of blood drawn in a doctor’s office or laboratory. This test, called prostate-specific antigen or PSA, measures the amount of a large protein in the body that is produced only by prostate cells. Since no other cell in the body makes this protein, the PSA test measures the amount of PSA produced by normal prostate cells and any additional PSA produced by prostate cancer cells. A normal sized prostate in a man without cancer produces an average 1.1 ng/ml of PSA. As men age, their prostate glands often enlarge, producing more PSA, so PSA measurements up to 4.0 ng/ml are considered in the normal range. A massively enlarged prostate or a prostate gland inflamed by prostatitis can produce even greater amounts of PSA. (Note: ng/ml means the amount of PSA in a milliliter of serum.) Because prostate cancer cells typically produce more PSA than normal cells do, a PSA reading above 4.0 ng/ml signals the need for further testing. However, in men with normal sized prostates, a PSA reading above 2.0 ng/ml should raise concerns for prostate cancer. The percent free (or PSA II) test is very helpful for men with a PSA less than 10.0 ng/ml. Percent free PSA readings of 25% or less in men with PSA 4.1-10.0 ng/ml or 15% with PSA of 2.5-4.0 ng/ml indicates possible prostate cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends that, starting at age 50, men have a PSA test each year. However, sons and brothers of prostate cancer patients, as well as all African-American men, should begin their PSA tests at age 40. In addition to the PSA test, it is recommended that men periodically have examinations of the prostate called a digital rectal examination (DRE). This is because some prostate cancers, frequently the more aggressive types, do not produce very much PSA and a lump in the prostate could be found with a DRE. The Big Three: PSA, Gleason Score and Clinical Stage If an abnormal PSA is discovered, or if a doctor finds a lump in the prostate during the DRE, that patient should be evaluated for prostate cancer. Typically, the patient is referred to a urologist for prostate biopsy consideration. A biopsy is a 10-minute outpatient procedure that can be performed in any urologist’s office. While observing the prostate with an ultrasound machine, the urologist inserts thin, hollow needles through the rectum into the patient’s prostate and removes a tiny amount of prostate cells. The biopsy material is then sent to a pathologist who studies these prostate cells under a microscope to determine if cancer is present. The best of the biopsy techniques is the sextant biopsy. During a sextant biopsy, the urologist performs six needle ‘sticks’, taking samples from the top, middle and bottom of the right and left sides of the prostate. Each needle stick is then placed in a separate container. This enables doctors to map out where any cancer is located. If prostate cancer is discovered, three major factors are evaluated: 1. PSA amount, which indicates how much cancer is present. 2. Gleason Score, which indicates how fast the cancer is growing. 3. Clinical Stage, which indicates where the cancer is located. PSA amount: Of the "big three," the amount of PSA is the most important. Why? Because it is the best measure of how much cancer a man has in his body. Based upon PSA levels, men are classified into one of four PSA groups: Table 1. PSA Groups 0.0-4.0 ng/ml 4.1-10.0 ng/ml 10.1-20.0 ng/ml 20.1 ng/ml or more

Torre's doctor: Early detection key to prostate cancer survival
March 18, 1999

Web posted at: 3:26 p.m. EST (2026 GMT)
(CNN) New York Yankees manager Joe Torre underwent surgery Thursday at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. Torre is just one of the 140,000 men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer on average each year. His two-and-one-half hour surgical procedure was performed by Dr. William Catalona, a Washington University urologic surgeon and a pioneer in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer. Medical Correspondent Dr. Steve Salvatore was able to talk with the doctor about his discovery of a blood test called "PSA" and its impact on the early detection of prostate cancer. RELATED VIDEO

The PDQ editorial boards use a formal ranking system to help the reader judge the strength of evidence linked to the reported results of a therapeutic strategy. (Refer to the PDQ summary on Levels of Evidence for more information.) Carcinoma of the prostate is predominantly a tumor of older men, which frequently responds to treatment when widespread and may be cured when localized. The rate of tumor growth varies from very slow to moderately rapid, and some patients may have prolonged survival even after the cancer has metastasized to distant sites such as bone. Because the median age at diagnosis is 72 years, many patients—especially those with localized tumors—may die of other illnesses without ever having suffered significant disability from their cancer. The approach to treatment is influenced by age and coexisting medical problems. Side effects of various forms of treatment should be considered in selecting appropriate management. Controversy exists in regard to the value of screening, the most appropriate staging evaluation, and the optimal treatment of each stage of the disease. [

Yankees manager Joe Torre logs on
By Michele Dula Baum Health Writer (CNN) A cancer diagnosis is enough to throw anyone a curve even those who should be used to them. New York Yankees manager Joe Torre a National League MVP as a third baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1971 remembers feeling "numb" when a doctor told him that he had prostate cancer two years ago. "I don't know what I would have done without Ali," he said of his wife, Alice. "She sought out information, asked questions and helped to guide us through the complicated process of reaching a treatment decision." The Torres are supporting the establishment of , an Internet-based support group for those facing prostate cancer and their families. The site officially launched on Valentine's Day. "When a man is diagnosed, he needs someone thinking clearly," Torre said. "I found friends who had had it only after I went public a couple of years ago."

The prostate is a small organ about the size of a walnut. It is found below the bladder (where urine is stored) and surrounds the tube that carries urine away from the bladder (urethra). The prostate makes a fluid that becomes part of semen. Semen is the white fluid that contains sperm. Prostate problems are common in men age 50 and older. Sometimes men feel symptoms themselves, or sometimes their doctors find prostate problems during routine exams. Doctors who are experts in diseases of the urinary tract (urologists) diagnose and treat prostate problems. There are many different kinds of prostate problems. Many don’t involve cancer, but some do. Treatments vary but prostate problems can often be treated without affecting sexual function.
