Welcome to the Why Urology podcast with Dr. Todd Brandt.

This podcast is my personal attempt to teach you about your genito-urinary tract, what can go wrong, and how your urologist may just become your superhero.

The name of the podcast comes from my ongoing need to answer the question that I get so often from patients, friends, and family, “Why Urology? Why did you choose to become a urologist?”

Dr. Todd Brandt discusses PSA screening in African-American men , highlighting the need for greater screening within that population given the higher incidence of prostate cancer and the greater risk of more aggressive disease.

Link to New York Times Op-Ed piece:

Quote from article:

"What’s needed, instead, is a smarter approach that incorporates the American Cancer Society’s recommendation that doctors and patients discuss the risks and benefits of PSA tests beginning at age 45 for African-American men, and at younger ages for men with a strong family history of prostate cancer."
