Dr. Thai Nguyen In the News

Advanced Urology Associates explains the importance of Prostate Cancer Screening

Having a prostate exam probably isn’t how most men prefer to spend an afternoon, but what if that exam is the difference between life and death? Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the U.S.; this year, almost 162,000 men will be diagnosed with the disease, and almost 28,000 more will die from it. About one in every seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lifetime.
