Prostate cancer survivor shares the importance of screening

Jay Wheeland


Jay: I just hadn't been to the doctor in years, and my wife finally talked me into it, and that's when they discovered the enlarged prostate. That's when I went to Summa Health, searched out Dr. Nething, and was actually diagnosed with the prostate cancer.

The recovery from the robotic surgery was absolutely minimal. I figured that guy pretty much saved my life. As a matter of fact, Dr. Nething and his staff invited me to a Rubber Ducks game to throw out the first pitch on Summa Health Cancer Awareness Night.

Now that the cancer is reading absolute minimal, I can spend time with my grand kids. God I love them.

My message to other men would be go get that prostate checked. Get the exam. It just might save your life.
