Cancer Treatment Centers of America will be providing free screenings for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer found in males. It is especially prevalent in men that are over forty years of age. In addition, African American men are seventy percent more likely to develop prostate cancer.
These free screenings will be provided in conjunction with the National Football League Alumni Association, as well as with Labcorp. It is part of a larger campaign to raise awareness about prostate cancer.
The American Cancer Society says that the estimate is that over one hundred and sixty thousand new cases of prostate cancer will develop over the next year. They recommend that anyone who is of the risk for prostate cancer should get screening.
The screening will be available for men who are over forty years of age and who fill other crucial requirements. Two thousand people will be able to get screenings completely free of charge. After the first two thousand people, there will be extremely low priced screenings at just twenty five dollars a screening.
Some famous former NFL players and coaches will be giving public announcements about the risk of prostate cancer. The goal is to develop awareness about prostate cancer. There will be a press conference. These screenings will take place in select locations around the country.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a network of shops that treat cancer. They use innovative and integrated methods to both heal cancer and provide relief for the symptoms and pain often suffered by people who have cancer.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded by Richard Stephenson after his mother died of cancer. He felt that there were not enough treatment options available. He decided to start Cancer Treatment Centers of America for that reason. They also have a brand presence in the Middle East and around the world.
