Physician Brings Support and Education to Prostate Cancer Patients

June 07, 2007

8 Every man has a lifetime risk of 1 in 6 of developing prostate cancer. It’s the most common non-skin cancer affecting men over the age of 50. Now, prostate cancer patients in the Lake Oconee community can gain information about the disease and the support of others through the new prostate cancer support group at Cowles Clinic. Dr. David Lowther, radiation oncologist at the Georgia Center for Total Cancer Care at Cowles Clinic is establishing the group.

“As a cancer specialist, I have literally treated hundreds of prostate patients. I am very proud to say that at Cowles Clinic we use state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic technologies to increase a man’s chance of cure. In addition to this level of advanced care, we will now be providing the educational and social support to assist those who are survivors, recently diagnosed or undergoing treatment. And, since no cancer diagnosis has effects limited only to the patient, all family and support persons will be encouraged to attend,” said Dr. Lowther.

Dr. Lowther will facilitate each session comprised mainly of question and answer with opportunity for discussion about prostate cancer, treatment concerns and wellness. Upcoming speakers will be announced on Cowles Clinic’s website and in local newspapers.

Dr. Lowther is board certified in radiation oncology. He received his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine and served his residency at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston and the University of California at San Francisco. Before joining the Cowles Clinic staff, Dr. Lowther served as Medical Director of El Camino Hospital in Silicon Valley. He was a staff member for additional hospitals in the Bay Area, including Summit Medical Center in Oakland, California where he worked alongside the innovator of Prostate High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy. In addition, Dr. Lowther was an active participant in the Silicon Valley Prostate Cancer Support Group. He gained widespread recognition as a leader in his field, receiving honors including Top Doctor in Silicon Valley in 2003-4 and 2004-5. Dr. Lowther cares for all types of cancer patients with a special interest in prostate, breast and gynecologic cancer treatments.

The Cowles Clinic Prostate Cancer Support Group meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of each month beginning June 26 at 6:30 PM in the Cowles Auditorium at the Georgia Center for Total Cancer Care on Linger Longer Road in Greensboro.
