The Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) are teaming up with LabCorp and the National Football League Alumni Association to help spread awareness for prostate cancer. Unfortunately, prostate cancer is the most common cancer found in men and with proper screening methods and preventative measures; they hope to be able to help increase awareness of the disease for many people. By education and access to more screenings, they are helping more people remain cancer free and more aware of their options. Beginning September 1st through October 15th, they will be providing screenings for men over 40. Many of those patients will meet certain requirements and become eligible for free screenings. LabCorp will be responsible for providing the screenings at any of their locations. They currently have over 1700 locations located within the United States. All other screenings will be $25 through the sign-up period and must be performed within six months after the sign-up date.
There are an alarming number of increased diagnosed patients who have prostate cancer and it continues to increase each year. The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be over 161,000 new cases developed in 2017 and recommend that all men who are over 40 to get screened right away. There are certain risk factors that come into play, and they will need to be evaluated sooner rather than later.
