Cancer Screening: Chris Smith

Chris Smith 13Diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011 Treatment team: Franciscan Cancer Center

“Every year when I get done with a routine annual physical, I sign up for the next year. My last physical saved my life. During the physical my doctor found hard masses in my prostate, so I was sent for a biopsy. The test confirmed that I had a very aggressive, fast-growing cancer. The change happened in one year — everything was normal the year before but this time I had cancer. I then had a robotic prostatectomy and couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
