Prostate screening: Make an informed choice

Despite its high incidence, prostate cancer is one of the most survivable forms of cancer, but early detection is key. While prostate cancer screening may detect prostate early, leading medical organizations disagree about who should — and who shouldn’t — get screened. That’s why the American Cancer Society recommends informed decision-making when it comes to having a test to check for prostate cancer. ~Dr. Carolyn Fronczak, urologist

The thyroid gland is vital to metabolism, growth and maturation. Located at the front part of the neck and shaped like a butterfly, the thyroid helps regulate many body functions by releasing hormones into the bloodstream. If too little thyroid hormone is produced, our body can slow down. This condition is called hypothyroidism.
