This is one of the Spring Break weeks for North Texas schools and we continue the conversation we started last week with Cindy Burnett talking about Spring Break safety, particularly for our daughters.
This week, we talk with Dr. Helen King, Assistant Professor, Division of Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine at UT Southwestern & HIV and Sexual Health Provider at Parkland Health & Hospital System. Dr. King discusses the breadth and depth of sexually transmitted diseases, which are on the rise nationwide, and here in Texas. The statistics will surprise you.
Then, we learn about treatment options for prostate cancer from Matthew Cavey, MD, Radiation Oncology Physician at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth. And one thing you may not have known that Dr. Cavey explains is that most men, if they live long enough, will have cancer cells in their prostate region. Perhaps not serious enough to treat, but as he says, it is a disease of aging for men.
