Debate Follows Study on Prostate Cancer Treatment

A new national study finds that older men diagnosed with prostate cancer will live longer the earlier they receive treatment. But some are skeptical of the findings.

Tony Cox talks about the debate with the study's leading author, Dr. Yu-ning Wong, and UCLA urology professor Dr. Mark Litwin. Cox also speaks with Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY), who is promoting a resolution to address the issue of prostate cancer among black men.
