During September’s Prostate Cancer Awareness month we want to remind men to make health care a priority and stay on top of their prostate cancer screenings. Dr. Jesse Mills, urologist and director of the Men’s Clinic at UCLA, reminds men that “there are no early warning signs of prostate cancer,” making it even more important to get regular checkups, including a prostate exam and PSA, every year starting at age 50. With heightened hygienic measures implemented in our UCLA Health urology clinics, we want to reassure our patients that we are open for regular prostate cancer screenings and ready to care for you. Schedule a prostate check-up today!
UCLA Urology counts on your generous support to sustain our outstanding and innovative clinical, research and education programs, allowing us to continue our important work of healing humankind, one urologic patient at a time.
