Prostate Cancer
The prostate gland is a part of the male reproductive system. It produces fluid to nourish and protect sperm. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Usually prostate cancer grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. While some types of prostate cancer may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly. So how do patients make decisions about screening and treatment?

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, general internist Dr. Jon Tilburt and retired Col. Jim Williams, a prostate cancer patient, will explain a pilot study at Mayo Clinic to help patients make informed decisions when it comes to prostate cancer treatment.

Common Foot Problems
Your foot is an intricate network of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Feet must be strong enough to bear your body weight, but that makes them prone to injury and pain. Foot pain can affect any part of your foot, from your toes to your Achilles tendon at the back of your heel. Common problems include bunions, plantar warts, and corns and callouses. However, more serious conditions, such as fractures, arthritis and neuropathy, also can develop in the feet.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Norman Turner III will discuss treatment for common foot problems and ways to prevent them.
