Cancer Treatment Centers of America There With You Every Step Of The Way
Prostate Cancer is a very serious issue, however many men neglect to have a prostate exam for whatever the reason may be. One in seven African Americans are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. Not knowing your status because of fear could potentially be worse than the reason you’re afraid to get a prostate exam. The Cancer Treatment Center of America knows that most men aren’t getting a regular prostate exam and have teamed up with the National Football League Alumni Association to bring the awareness up on the real live epidemic of prostate cancer. Early detection could mean the difference between life or death. This is why having an prostate exam is encouraged as early as age 40.
Men, you are needed in your family. Screening is the first line of defense to protect you and your family against the devastation of what prostate cancer can do if left untreated. LabCorp has also joined the effort in bringing awareness up for prostate cancer. They have joined forces with the NFLA and the Cancer Treatment Centers to provide low cost or in some cases even free PSA (Prostate Specific Anigen) screening.
If it is determined that your PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigens) are elevated your Doctor may request for more testing to be done to see if you have cancer or to see if you are are at risk for cancer, both are equally serious. Having elevated PSA levels could mean you are at risk for Prostate Cancer and steps will be taken to prevent cancer from arriving. However if at any point it is determined you have prostate cancer your Doctor will consult with you to help you get through to the next step.
Having an cancer diagnosis can be devastating, and wanting to take the next step right sway is understood. This is why Cancer Treatment Centers of America are available 24 hour a day 7 days a week to discuss treatment options. You can call them at anytime you are ready. The earlier you accept treatment the better you’re chances of survival.
