Most people know Rob Lowe from either his TV and film appearances from the 1980s all the way to present day. Recently, Rob Lowe has lent his talents to a popular public television series called "Informed." This TV series seeks to draw attention to some of the most pressing issues facing modern society today. One of the newest additions to the series seeks to educate people on prostate cancer.
It's no secret that cancer has been one of the most pressing issues facing the modern healthcare system today. As people live longer, cancer only becomes more and more common. There have been notable advances in cancer testing and treatment in recent years. Mammograms have led to early detection of breast cancer and lower mortality rates. Colonoscopies have done the same for colon cancer. The HPV vaccines and Pap smears have combined to lower the rate of cervical cancer. When it comes to prostate cancer, there is a significant amount of controversy. For years, men have been screened using a test called the PSA; however, prostate cancer is relatively slow growing. Even if someone has prostate cancer, it is more likely that the man will die with prostate cancer rather than from prostate cancer. What should be done regarding prostate cancer testing? This is one of the issues that this episode seeks to draw attention to.
"Informed" with Rob Lowe is a public television show that is reviewed for quality standards prior to national broadcast. It has won numerous awards since its inception.
