New Prostate Cancer Screening Guidelines: A Patient and Physician Perspective

Prostate cancer screening recommendations have recently changed. Join Dr. H. Ballantine Carter, professor of urology and oncology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, for an explanation of the new guidelines. Dr. Carter, an internationally-recognized specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate disease who served on the panel that developed the new screening guidelines, has studied thousands of patients with prostate cancer using a treatment approach called "active surveillance" where men undergo regular evaluations in order to determine whether treatment is necessary. Cancer survivor, Guido Adelflo, will share his personal story. A light hors d'oeuvres and drink reception will follow the presentation during which time Dr. Carter and urologists from Central Maryland Urology Associates (including Drs. Applestein, Bepple, Blumenthal, Kishel, Nezu, Rodriquez and Tully) will answer questions from attendees.
