Dr. Radtke Becomes Newest Prostate Cancer Ambassador
by Robert Warren Hess
Prostate cancer is a silent disease that has no symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage.
The good news is that a simple PSA blood will show if your PSA is elevated. Looking at your PSA test number each year will show you if you have a rising trend, which just means a doctor visit to determine if its cancer (only a 1 in 6 chance) or something else.
Dr. Jan Radtke recently became our first overseas prostate cancer ambassador, helping get the word out to guys about the importance of the simple PSA test. Jan is a urologist practicing in Heidleberg, Germany. The picture was taken last month at Germany’s largest gran fondo ride, more than 10,000 riders!

And we sure to take your annual PSA test and personally track the results.
