Local doctor who survived prostate cancer has message
BEAUMONT - A new study is fueling the debate over prostate cancer treatment.
A report published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests radical removal of the prostate has more long-term survival benefits than a watch-and-wait approach.
Dr. Rufus Mark, medical director of radiation and oncology at Baptist Cancer Center, treats cancer patients on a daily basis. However, only a couple years ago, he was the cancer patient himself.
Dr. Mark had an aggressive form of prostate cancer that he fought with aggressive radiation treatments. He says his battle with the disease helps in treating patients.
Dr. Mark says deciding which treatment you choose for prostate cancer depends on the severity of the disease.
However, Dr. Mark has a message. He says he credits screenings with saving his life.
