September is prostate cancer awareness month, and we are proud to partner with The Indiana Cancer Consortium’s Prostate Cancer Coordinating Committee to present “Life with Prostate Cancer,” a seminar for prostate cancer patients, survivors, and loved ones. This seminar is designed to provide prostate cancer patients with information to live life more fully after diagnosis and treatment.
The seminar will be held at our facility on Tuesday, September 11, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and features keynote presentations from Dr. Donald Urban of Parkview Physicians Group, as well as Dr. Theodore Wagner of Northeast Indiana Urology. Bill Seidel, a prostate cancer survivor, will give a special guest presentation on “Tricks Learned in Dealing with Prostate Cancer.” Topics of discussion will include survivorship, intimacy, and treatment.
For more information, please visit the ICC website or the Life with Prostate Cancer registration page. Reservations may also be made by calling Cancer Services at (260) 484-9560 or toll free 866-484-9560.
Excluding all types of skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States and Indiana. Approximately 1 in 6 men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 1 in 36 will die from it during their lifetime (visit Prostate Cancer in Indiana to learn more).

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and Us TOO International sponsored a successful seminar on prostate cancer and men’s health on Saturday, September 18. The seminar was held at Cancer Services and featured six speakers addressing topics, such as PSA Screening and Active Surveillance, Surgical Options for Prostate Cancer, Systemic Treatments such as Immunotherapy and Provenge, Nutrition, Exercise and Enhancing Men’s Sexual Health. Not surprisingly the session on enhancing sexual health was the most heavily attended. All speakers provided interesting information in an entertaining format. We hope to make this an annual event.
The Us TOO Information Table. Us TOO International provides extensive information on prostate cancer in all of its various forms and ramifications. The most popular publications were made available for attendees.
