Prostate Cancer Prevention

Prostate Cancer Prevention

At the NCI-designated Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center, we’re focused on preventing cancer from ever starting by catching it as early as possible, when treatment is easiest and most effective.

Prostate cancer prevention is one of the many goals of our  prostate cancer team.

You can take many steps to lower your chances of getting prostate cancer. These include understanding your family health history, choosing healthy nutrition and including exercise in your daily routine. It’s also important to identify cancer in its earliest stage, and getting a prostate cancer screening can help. You can work closely with our doctors to best understand if screening is right for you. You can schedule an appointment at one of our convenient locations throughout the Bronx, Westchester and Hudson Valley. We also partner with Essen Healthcare to host prostate cancer screenings throughout the year.

If you have certain risk factors, our Genetics Program offers high-quality care and resources, empowering you with the knowledge you need to take a proactive approach to your prostate and overall health.

For more than 50 years, Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center has been a leader in the research, diagnosis and treatment of over 200 types of cancer. Turn to us for expert cancer screening and prevention.
