Each year, the San Antonio Cancer Center along with Urology San Antonio hosts the city’s ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk. The race, which is part of the nation-wide ZERO Prostate Cancer race series, brings awareness to the disease and offers a time to celebrate and recognize loved ones affected by the disease.
Proceeds from the event benefit Los Padres, a San Antonio prostate cancer charity, and support the national initiatives of the nonprofit organization, ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer.

The local chapter of the Us Too Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network holds free monthly support and education meetings for men who have been affected by prostate cancer and their loved ones.
The chapter’s meetings are organized by volunteer leaders and usually include question and answer sessions with specialists in disciplines related to prostate cancer (ie: urology, radiation oncology, nutrition, mental health, advocacy).
More than 200,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually in the United States. Another 5 million men are living with the disease. The good news is that prostate cancer, when detected early, is very curable. And even when it is not curable, it can still be treated, giving a man many more years of life. Author Dr. Arthur Centeno, MD, is a specialist in prostate health and prostate cancer, who understands the anxiety that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis.
The third edition of Prostate Cancer: A Man’s Guide to Treatment answers the questions newly diagnosed patients have. The book is available in paperback and published by Addicus Books.
