Bethesda, Md., (March 27, 2014) – Suburban Hospital hosts the Prostate Cancer Survivorship Series presentation, “New Advances in Molecular Testing for the Guidance of Patients Considering Active Surveillance,” on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, from 7:00-8:15 pm in the hospital auditorium, located at 8600 Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda.

Prostate cancer can be potentially lethal, but it can also have a slow disease course, as nearly half of all newly diagnosed men may end up not needing immediate treatment.

Join Ashley E. Ross, M.D., PhD, assistant professor, Departments of Urology, Oncology and Pathology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, for a discussion about emerging tests that use molecular features of prostate cancer to better determine which patients require immediate treatment and which may be good candidates for surveillance.
