September is Prostate Awareness Month

Did you know that September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month? Awareness for men about this disease is vital, because prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men. However, when detected early prostate cancer also has some of the highest rates of survival.

If you are concerned about prostate cancer or are seeking a second opinion for yourself of a loved one, you have a partner in care in South Jersey. Now, patients in South Jersey can be evaluated right in their own neighborhood at the Kennedy Cancer Center - the only Penn Cancer Network member in South Jersey.

Through Kennedy's partnership with Penn Medicine patients are offered some of the most advanced treatment options for prostate cancer, including Proton Therapy at the Roberts Proton Therapy Center at Penn. Proton therapy is an incredibly precise form of radiation therapy with the potential for less side effects.

Make us your first choice for your second opinion. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 856-218-5324.
