September is Prostate Awareness Month. Prostate cancer can be a killer if not caught early. An NFL veteran and a doctor have teamed up to help raise awareness about the very real threat of this disease and how easy it is to get screened for and treat it, if necessary.

WHO SHOULD BE SCREENED FOR PROSTATE CANCER?

According to guidelines published by the American Cancer Society, “Asymptomatic men who have at least a 10-year life expectancy have an opportunity to make an informed decision with their healthcare provider about screening for prostate cancer after they receive information about the uncertainties, risks, and potential benefits associated with prostate cancer screening.”

 MOST MEN NEED A PEP TALK BEFORE GETTING SCREENED. TELL US ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN?

Cancer Treatment Centers of America®, the NFL Alumni Association and LabCorp have joined together to raise awareness around the importance of prostate cancer screening. Throughout September, Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, we will offer free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) screenings to eligible men, age 40 and older, at select LabCorp locations across the country.
