Dr. David Samadi is a surgeon with a specialty in prostate cancer. He is known across the word for his input in urologic oncology as well as being the chief of Robotic Surgery. In September this year, he announced that a prostate cancer support group would begin offering its services at Lexon Hospital, Dallas. The primary objective of this group is to feed as many people as possible with information about prostate cancer. Various men who have been recently diagnosed or have been living with the disease will be given the so needed emotional support. The close friends and relatives of the cancer patients will also be given emotional support.
Dr. David Samadi says that once an individual is faced with a major illness or undergoes a stressful moment of their life, it becomes hard to go through it alone. The group is aimed at easing the stress associated with the diagnosis of prostate cancer. A prostate cancer support group brings men together and give them the rare opportunity of sharing ideas and their experiences as they offer emotional support to one another. This group aims at helping people understand that they are not alone in their current situation and that at the support they are safe and can open up since all information talked about in this group remains confidential. One of the group’s mission is to advocate for the need of getting a prostate cancer screening test so that the disease can be dealt with as soon as it sets in. In this group also, men get to know more about illness and the various possible means of treatment. Together, family friends, patients as well as the community as a whole can be brought together by the group, and as such, the attitude of may will be changed. The opportunity to be part of the Lenox Hill Hospital prostate cancer support group is open for all.
