REGISTRATION REQUIRED Virtual Event According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer. About 1 in 44 men will die of prostate cancer. Conversely, testicular cancer is rare and makes up approximately 1% of cases. Both are highly treatable. Join us for this Men's Health session to understand the signs, symptoms, and treatment methods for both during the Weill Cornell Medicine Wellness Series with the Harry Belafonte 115th Street Library. Presenter: Bashir Al Hussein Al Awamlh, MD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor of Urology at Weill Cornell Medicine Dr. Al Hussein's research interests include applying epidemiological methods to improve care quality for cancer patients, focusing on decision-making, survivorship, and disparities stemming from social determinants of health.

In his clinical practice, Dr. Al Hussein is committed to providing patient-centered care, leveraging both robotic and traditional open surgical approaches to effectively manage genitourinary cancers.
