Urologist speaks to prostate cancer support group

By March 4, 2011

Men who have been treated for prostate cancer experience recurrent “PSA anxiety” from worry about possible return of the disease. On Monday, March 14, the Yolo Prostate Cancer Support Group will welcome board-certified urologist Kenneth H. Ferguson, who will speak on “PSA Recurrence After Initial Treatment for Localized Prostate Cancer.”

Ferguson, a Sutter Medical Group physician, will answer questions after his talk.

Women are invited to attend the presentation, which coincides with the quarterly meeting of the spouse’s auxiliary that the Yolo Prostate Cancer Support Group has established. PSA (prostate-specific antigen), measured by a blood test, can indicate potential disease in the prostate.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in Sutter Medical Foundation’s first-floor conference room at 2030 Sutter Place in Davis.

The support group offers an opportunity to meet prostate cancer survivors and discuss treatment options, recovery and side-effects. For details, call Ray Biancalana at (530) 756-6408 or Harold Honeyfield at (530) 756-9153.
