In our first broadcast we introduce “onko.tv” to you in general. We will deliberately approach prostate cancer in the following broadcasts, since it appears to be the most prevalent cancer in men with ca. 60.000 new cases annually. Our guest today is Prof. Dr. Heidenreich from the University Hospital of Cologne. Treating patients with prostate cancer for years now, he relates his experiences with handling the diagnosis and clarifies precautionary and aftercare proceedings.

Furthermore, we accompany two patients that have been suffering from prostate cancer for years. Having handled the disease quite differently from each other, they recount their emotions and fears. The first broadcast, just like the forthcoming, seeks to serve not only as informative, but also to convey the message: „We want that prostate cancer ceases to be a taboo subject – we intend to make it readily accessible with all facets to a wider public.”
