Prostate Cancer Screening – UNC Cancer Network RN and Allied Health Lecture

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with Marc Bjurlin, DO, MSc, FACOS, and Meredith Crabtree, FNP-C. The most common non-skin cancer among men in the U.S., prostate cancer, can be difficult to catch early. With this lecture, we will talk about screening methods such as MRI and MRI- ultrasound targeted fusion biopsy as a risk stratification tool for men at risk for prostate cancer. For men who undergo radiation treatment, we will also touch on which ones might consider utilizing hydrogels. We will also discuss the nurse's role in prostate cancer screening and care.
