After a high PSA test, Steve Lucido underwent a prostatectomy to reduce risk of incontinence and impotence.
At age 56, Steve Lucido had a routine blood test, which revealed a high level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), indicating prostate cancer. After extensive research, Lucido learned that researchers and surgeons at Johns Hopkins were performing prostate cancer surgery with a technique that reduces the risks for incontinence and impotence. After reaching out to Dr. Edward Schaeffer, researcher and surgeon at Johns Hopkins, Lucido underwent a radical prostatectomy in October 2008. Today, Lucido is cancer-free and back to his active life.
