Urology Austin Patient Featured on KXAN
Urology Austin patient,David Bryce, was diagnosed with prostate cancer at age 52. Bryce’s doctor, David Cuellar, M.D., used the latest robotic surgery to remove most of his cancer; however, a small part of the tumor could not be reached, and Bryce had a recurrence. Fortunately, he just completed the last of 39 radiation treatments.
Doctors are optimistic about David’s future. But he wants other men to pay attention to men’s health issues like prostate cancer, which is why he and Dr. Cuellar have grown mustaches for Movember.
