Local Urologist to Discuss Men’s Health Concerns at March 16 Lee Memorial Well Informed Lecture
Cancer, urinary problems and even impotence and erectile function can all be impacted by men’s prostate glands. Dr. Meir Daller will explore these and other top health issues men face as they age at Lee Memorial Health System’s Well Informed lecture on March 16 between 5 and 6:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Place Coconut Point in Estero.
“As men age, factors like changing hormones, cell growth and genetics come into play and often causes changes in the prostate,” says Dr. Daller, a Fort Myers urologist. “These can range from an enlarged prostate, erectile dysfunction and incontinence, which are fairly common and easy to treat, to more serious problems like cancer.”
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services estimates that enlarged prostate will impact more than half of men over age 60, and increase to about 80 percent of men by age 80. And while prostate cancer mortality rates have improved over the past 50 years, more than 28,000 men still die of the disease each year.
“Even though prostate problems are common, it’s still important for aging men to know the warning signs and understand what their treatment options are,” Dr. Daller says. He will discuss these, and health concerns like other cancers and kidney stones at Lee Memorial Health System’s upcoming Well Informed lecture.
