The Cancer Treatment Centers Of America Heads Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America has a long history of being involved in some of the most impressive public awareness campaigns in the recent history of the U.S. and is continuing this tradition across Prostate Awareness Month 2017. Partnering with the National Football League Alumni group and LabCorp, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America believes the issue of prostate cancer needs to be raised with men over 40 who are the most at risk of becoming one of the more than 160,000 cases of prostate cancer expected to be diagnosed in 2017.

Within the range of activities planned for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month which includes some activities involving many of the best-known former head coaches in the history of the NFL. Public service announcements will air on TV stations across the U.S. featuring legendary coaches including Bill Cowher who will urge men over the age of 40 to complete regular Prostate Specific Antigen screenings which are seen as a positive way of diagnosing the most common form of cancer found in males. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America wishes to ensure the most at-risk groups are taking part in screening programs including African-American males who are 70 percent more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than white males.

Across the U.S. the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has been opening new facilities on a regular basis to take the number of locations to five within the nation; the first international office opened for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Mexico City to act as the first contact for potential patients hoping to be treated in the U.S.
