Prostate Cancer Treatment at Denver Health
Denver Health’s urology team specializes in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment using minimally invasive surgery (MIS).
Prostate Cancer Diagnosis
Depending on each patient's health and family history, his doctor may discuss prostate cancer screening options. In general, screening using digital rectal exam (DRE) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) are recommended for men beginning at age 50 and earlier for men with a family history. Patients with any abnormal results are referred to Denver Health urologist Dr. Fernando Kim for addition testing.
If the test detects an abnormality, our urologists may recommend a prostate biopsy. If a biopsy is taken and the results are positive, the urologist’s recommendation to operate is based upon many factors, including the patient’s age, health history and wishes.
