  • Did You Know?More than 2 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today. Each year, almost 200,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 30,000 men die of the disease.

    Early detection is critical to the success of prostate cancer treatments. Often there are no early symptoms. A yearly PSA screening blood test remains the best option to help men assess their risk. Georgia Urology follows the American Urological Associations recommendation for yearly screening in males beginning at age 40.

    Georgia Urology delivers the mostadvanced urological care available. As thelargest urology practice in the Southeast,our 37 highly-trained and experiencedurologists specialize in the medical andsurgical management of all genitourinaryconditions in men, women, adolescents andchildren including:
