St. Francis Cancer Center offers free prostate cancer seminar

INDIANAPOLIS – It’s estimated that one man in six is likely to develop prostate cancer during his lifetime. The good news is that, through regular screening and education, the disease is being found earlier and the death rate for prostate cancer is going down.

That’s why Franciscan St. Francis Cancer Center (8111 S. Emerson Ave,) is offering a free seminar on prostate cancer at 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 28. William Schwab, MD, of Urology of Indiana, will lead the discussion about risks, diagnosis, current treatment options and the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery. Participants will have the opportunity to “test drive” a da Vinci robotic surgery system and see firsthand how the advanced technology works.

The seminar is free and refreshments and light dinner will be provided.

Space is limited and registration is required. Call 877-888-1777 to register.
