If you’re a man of a certain age, or someone who loves him, the thought of prostate cancer is never far away. After all, the disease is the most common cancer diagnosis in men, and the likelihood increases with age. That’s why researchers and physicians worldwide are working to improve diagnoses and treatments.

No one is more aware of the status of this work than Dr. Mark Litwin, the chair of urology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a member of UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, who has just published a review of the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association).
