Prostate Cancer Awareness
We at South Mississippi Urology want to help bring awareness to the importance of being proactive in testing for and treating prostate cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, “Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “If diagnosed early, many prostate cancers grow slowly and don’t cause any health problems in men who have them.” Men can review their PSA levels with their primary care physician. If the results are abnormal, a prostate biopsy can be done.
Our experienced team of urologists use state of the art diagnostic equipment and advanced treatment techniques including robot assisted technology and many other laparoscopic and minimally invasive procedures to manage urological problems in men and women.
Singing River Health System and South Mississippi Urology are the first in the state to use innovative technology, UroNav – combining the benefits of an MRI with ultrasound to create a detailed, 3-D view of the prostate. By allowing physicians to see the prostate in this way, they can identify suspicious areas, and then target them for biopsy. UroNav brings the power of MRI to the Urology suite as prostate and lesion segmentation data from Radiology are quickly and easily transferred to UroNav for review and target identification.
South Mississippi Urology is the premier urology practice in Mississippi and on the Gulf Coast. Our board certified urologists provide the finest care in urology available and strive for the best outcomes for all of our patients. Combined with over 28 years of experience in treating urological conditions, Dr. Mark Lyell, Dr. David Spencer Jr., and Alejandra Diaz provide South Mississippi with convenient care in three locations spanning the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
We encourage you to be proactive about your health and the health of your loved ones.
