September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
One in seven American men will have prostate cancer during his lifetime. Finding prostate cancer when it is still at an early stage offers the best hope for living cancer free for a long time. All men are at risk of developing prostate cancer but that risk increases significantly as men grow older. Learn more about symptoms, detection, and treatment at ZeroCancer.org and find out about the Medicare prostate cancer screening benefit on the CMS website.
