KANSAS CITY, Mo. — June is Men’s Health Month. It's every guys nightmare; to come to a doctors office and talk about things you don't want to talk about.

“Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers that we have,” Dr. Van Veldheizen said. He specializes in prostate, kidney and bladder cancer. He also says the key to surviving cancers in this part of the body is catching it early.

“Prostate cancer is very curable at an early stage of the disease, through radiation and surgery, with a very high cure rate if its detected early.”

If you notice something, see your doctor.
