Cancer

Cancer is the abnormal and uncontrolled cell growth in a person’s body. Cancerous, or malignant cells divide too quickly for your body to respond and fight off these cells. Cancer can manifest itself almost anywhere in the body, therefore symptoms vary depending on what type of cancer a person has developed.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in males, affecting approximately 1 in 7 men. In fact, the American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017, more than 161,000 new cases will be diagnosed. Because it is such a common and potentially fatal disease, early detection and prompt treatment is critical. MRI exams are currently the best non-invasive tool for more accurate detection of prostate cancer and assist in the development of the appropriate treatment plan. DMG’s Radiologists explain why MRI’s are a preferred screening option for prostate cancer.
