Prostate Cancer Support Groups in Maryland

MarylandChesapeake Urology Associates, P.A., is the largest urology practice in Maryland, offering the most state-of-the-art urology care available nationwide. Composed of more than 40 of the mid-Atlantic region’s top urologists, Chesapeake Urology features the convenience of 20 locations in and around Baltimore, ranging from Anne Arundel County to Cecil County. In addition, 12 of these locations contain ambulatory surgery centers, staffed by board-certified anesthesiologists. For more information, visit www.GreatProstateCancerChallenge.com.

Committed and passionate about his work, Dr. Siegel has been toiling diligently on a major awareness initiative over the past two years to make sure that this all-important health issue is on the forefront. He and other experts insists that unlike women, men are less likely to see a doctor – particularly for a health matter such as prostate cancer. After all, it does involve investigation of a sensitive part of the body: the rectum.
