The most common cancer among men is the Prostate cancer. The Cancer Treatment of America, the National Football League Alumni Association, and LabCorp are partnering to increase awareness of Prostate cancer and to increase access to screening among men. LabCorp went as far as providing free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) screening to 2000 men over the age of 40 years who met their eligibility requirements. After the first lot of 2000 men, LabCorp has continued providing the PSA screening at a discounted price of $25.
According to the American Cancer Society, in 2107 there will be new 161,360 prostate cancer diagnoses since one out of seven men is anticipated to be diagnosed with cancer in the course of their lifetime. Family history and race are the risk factors. African-Americans have higher chances of developing Prostate cancer which is predicted in one out of five men.
Former NFL coaches including Herm Edwards and Bill Cowher will be featured in the Prostrate Pep Talk campaign. They are charged with the responsibilities of creating awareness of the risks of Prostate cancer and encouraging fellow men to go through the disease screening. The three organization have given screening priority since screening is the first defense against Prostate cancer.
