Prostate Cancer Awareness Raised By The Cancer Treatment Centers Of America

Men aged over 40 are the latest target in the ongoing fight to raise awareness about different forms of cancer being fought by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the Florida based healthcare provider. In a bid to reach as many men as possible with its educational and screening program the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has joined forces with the National Football League Alumni organization and LabCorp to educate men and provide discounted screening opportunities for eligible males.

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting men with an annual number of newly diagnosed cases topping 160,000. The likelihood of a diagnosis is increased within some social groups such as African-American males who are 70 percent more likely to be diagnosed with this form of cancer than white males. The involvement of the NFL will take many different forms over the course of September into October and include a number of former head coaches taking part in public service announcements. Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September will see the start of a six-month program offering 2,000 men Prostate Specific Antigen screening for free and those meeting eligibility requirements provided with screenings for just $25.

Headquartered in Florida, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has expanded its reach over recent years with the opening of a number of new facilities after its first facility opened in 1988. First opening its doors in Zion, Illinois before also opening facilities in a number of different states including Arizona, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania.

One of the reasons for the success of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America is the dedication to bringing non-traditional treatments to cancer patients across the U.S. Traditional surgeries, chemotherapy, and medication-based treatments complemented by nutritional and other alternative therapies.
