Guest Doctor on 'Hello VOA' to Discuss Prostate Cancer

Dr. Taing Tek Hong, a Cambodian-American physician, explained prostate cancer and its treatment to "Hello VOA" listeners Thursday morning.

Taing Tek Hong discussed screening, blood tests and treatment of the disease.

One caller asked if cancer could pass from one person to another, but the doctor said no, while recommending that, after 50 years of age, men check in every year with a physician to ensure they do not have the disease.
