Edward Schaeffer, MD, Chief of Urology at Northwestern Medicine discusses the new Institute was made possible by a commitment of $10 million from philanthropist Michael Polsky, CEO of Invenergy and a longtime friend to Northwestern Medicine. Northwestern Medicine is dedicated to addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, and rates are on the rise. Prostate cancer can often be found before symptoms start by early screening and testing the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in a man’s blood. This screening is important because in its early stages, prostate cancer often doesn’t cause any symptoms.
