Keeping audience members on top of their health, especially when screening for cancer, was the main topic for the latest episode of “Medcast Plus,” a television features program aimed at informing Brooklynites about various health issues, with doctors as featured guests.

In the most recent edition, urologist Dr. Yan Wolfson was the show’s guest. “Essentially, I discussed state-of-the-art thinking about prostate cancer, the importance of screening and potential treatment options,” he said. “In the episode, we also answered questions about kidney stone disease in terms of diagnosis and treatment.”

Wolfson stressed that patients must be proactive in exploring their health. “The key points would be that screening is available and recommended,” he said. “It’s not a difficult thing to do. And it could potentially diagnose a significant problem. There have been a lot of advances in medicine so we can offer a variety of different treatments and a lot of them are non-surgical.”

The doctor, who made his first appearance on the show, found it to be an enjoyable and important experience. “They cover some important topics and it’s a nice, relaxed forum where you can educate people,” he said. “It’s good in that it’s not commercially driven. It’s a really good public use of resources.”

The show’s host Ilana Kozak found Wolfson to be very informative. “Dr. Wolfson provided extensive information about the different types of screenings available,” she said. “He provided detailed examples of what is done at each screening which may put some people that are considering it at ease. He also talked about the risks, likelihood and other statistics available regarding prostate cancer.”

She added that Wolfson was a great guest. “It was very pleasant to interview a doctor that has many years of real life experience and who is so very knowledgeable about the subject,” Kozak said.

“Being a host of the Medcast show is great,” she added. “The show offers viewers access to valuable information that may not be readily available regarding a variety of healthcare subjects.”

Greg Romenski is the executive producer of “Medcast Plus.” The next episode will air on Thursday, July 27 on Channel 79 on Time Warner, 68 on Optimum, 83 on RCN and 43 on Verizon Fios.
