Dr. David Samadi has dedicated his entire career to the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. The doctor who is based at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York recently announced plans to start a prostate cancer support group. The support group will commence holding its meetings this month.
Once the support group starts its sessions, Dr. David Samadi hopes that the group will achieve many goals. The doctor believes that the group will provide moral support for men who are undergoing prostate cancer treatment, those who were diagnosed recently, and men who successfully underwent prostate cancer treatment. Apart from emotional support, the group will provide information about prostate cancer and how the disease can be treated. Also, it will be part of the group’s mission to enlighten males on the benefits of attending an annual prostate screening which medical practitioners refers to it as prostate cancer specific antigen or PSA.
Why did Dr. David Samadi settle for a support group? For many years, support groups have been referred to safe havens where members undergoing similar life challenges can gather and share information that is likely to build each other. Support groups are associated with high levels of confidentiality, and members rarely judge each other as they are affected by the same problems. The Lennox Hill Hospital support group will have members who survived the prostate cancer ordeal; what a better way to motivate prostate cancer patients to keep on fighting than positive stories from men who triumphed over the number two killer disease for males? However, Dr. David Samadi notes that people who survived the disease also need assistance as they may have a skewed view towards life.
Men and women related to prostate cancer patients are likely to be under stress to see their loved ones in agony. According to Dr. David Samadi, such people also need assistance. Any other prostate cancer well-wishers are also invited to join the bandwagon. Any inquiries about the Lenox Hill Hospital can be directed to (212) 365-5000.
