A video by Mark Scholz, MD on “Prostate Cancer Staging”.  He discusses the different stages of prostate cancer and the different treatment options for that stage and success rate of those treatments.  This video was uploaded by the Prostate Cancer Research Institute.  In reviewing the video, we were very nicely surprised by the additional detail provided on all stages of prostate cancer, including when cancer returns, and the very understandable way in which the information is shared.  Part of accepting a cancer diagnosis is a clear understanding of the disease and processes.
