When it comes to cancer and men, prostate cancer is the cancer that affects men the most. The National Football Leagues Association, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, and LabCorp have come together to help create awareness and educate men about this disease. LabCorp is taking it a step further by providing free and low-cost PSA screenings for men all over the United States.
The American Cancer Society predicts that over 161,000 new prostate diagnosis will be made this year. Hopefully, by educating men and providing early screenings, the numbers will not continue to rise. It is recommended that African American men and those men who have a family history of prostate cancer, should begin to get screened at the age of 40,
This campaign, Prostate Pep Talk, has National Head Coaches and well-known players picking up the microphone to state how education and early screenings will benefit the overall health of men. LabCorp is happy to be on this team in getting men to get their PSA test.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) understands that screening leads to early detection and treatment. When caught early, it is very treatable and with the advancement in technology, the dreaded side-effects have been reduced. CTCA spends a lot of time working with the community educating people about cancer and the importance of screening and getting treated.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is known for their unique approach to treating cancer is that no two patients are alike. Treatments are individualized because no two cancers are the same. They believe that for a person to get well, the whole person needs to be treated and cared for, and not just the cancer that is within them.
