Doctors Hospital raising awareness about silent killer

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Doctors Hospital is raising awareness this September for Prostate Cancer, a silent killer in men that can often go undetected.

"Prostate cancer has no symptoms and unless it's detected early, the chance for a cure will not be very good," Dr. Conrado N. Tojino said.

Doctors said a simple exam in a physician's office can detect the disease early. They said a primary physician can do the screening and it involves a blood test.
