                                                                                                  Prostate cancer specialist
One in 9 men will get prostate cancer — and Novant Health Cancer Specialists can partner
with you to better understand the newest recommendations.

Deborah Bradley, MD, a fellowship-trained and board-certified medical oncologist, specializes
in diagnoses and treatment of prostate cancer at Novant Health Cancer Specialists. Dr. Bradley
and the rest of the Cancer Specialists team can help your patients get the screening they need —
and help you get the crucial conversations started.

Prostate cancer conversations need to start earlier than many patients think. The American
Cancer Society urges screening discussions begin at:
• Age 50 for men who are at average risk of prostate cancer and are expected to live at least

  10 more years.
• Age 45 for men at high risk of developing prostate cancer. This includes African Americans

  and men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother or son) diagnosed with prostate
  cancer at an early age (younger than age 65).
• Age 40 for men at even higher risk (those with more than one first-degree relative who
  had prostate cancer at an early age).
