Division of Urology faculty members are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and expertise with the community by offering free educational seminars and health screenings each year.
Prostate Cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America; 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with it at some point in their lives. A decision of whether to be screened for prostate cancer is a personal one, so it's important that each man talk with his doctor about whether prostate cancer screening is right for him. For over two decades Duke Urology has offered to the men of Durham and Raleigh a free men's health event. For most of that time, it focused on prostate cancer screening.
For the last two years Duke Urology has partnered with the Duke Cancer Institute, Lincoln Community Health Center, Duke Heart Center, Durham Diabetes Coalition, Durham County Department of Public Health and CAARE, Inc to expand the screening and include screenings for other diseases with similar higher incidences of illness such as hypertension and diabetes.

There are many treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED), male incontinence, and testosterone deficiency. Some offer a temporary solution; others provide a longer lasting approach. This symposium will provide the attendee with the information needed to find a solution that is most satisfying for him - and his partner.
A wide range of treatment options ranging from new medications to the latest in penile implants and anti-incontinence procedures in men will be discussed. Speakers will describe the epidemiological risk factors for ED and the proven methods for restoration of erectile function. The impact of urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy will be addressed, with a special focus on surgical correction of this bothersome cancer survivorship issue. In addition, a previous patient will be on hand to share his experience.
The symposium will also focus on the role of testosterone in normal male health. A thorough overview of testosterone deficiency will educate attendees on how to identify the signs and symptoms of low testosterone. In addition, the program will offer a thorough review of treatment options for testosterone deficiency and the controversy currently surrounding testosterone replacement therapy.
