Prostate cancer is one of the killer diseases among men ins today’s world. That is backed up by statistics which show that one in seven men will be diagnosed with this cancer in their lifetime. That has led to some organizations such as NFL, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, as well as LabCorp to team up to increase cancer awareness and at the same time encourage men to show up for early screening.
Prostate Cancer screening is done for free to all men who are aged 40 years and above and who meet the eligibility requirements since this age group is at the risk of developing prostate cancer.
As part of the screening process, public service announcements are going to be given by former NFL coaches; Dick Vermeil, Herm Edwards, as well as Bill Cowher. These announcements will be aired nationally in the cancer awareness month of September.
The main aim will be encouraging men on getting screened for the disease which is considered the first defense against cancer. These organizations have also teamed up to provide advances in screening techniques, diagnosis as well as treatment options.
