One in nine men in the U.S. will contract prostate cancer. While 165,000 men are expected to be diagnosed this year, nearly 30,000 will die from it. But, the majority of patients will continue living the rest of their lives with ongoing treatment, and sometimes, a wide range of side effects. 

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in the United States. Insight Host Beth Ruyak talks with urologic oncologist Dr. David Javidan about the latest research and treatments. Spencer Le Gate details his personal experience with prostate cancer.
