Prostate cancer is regularly diagnosed in men of all ages. In order to spread awareness of regular testing and education of this deadly disease, Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is paring up with LabCorp and the National Football League Alumni Association (NFLA) to bring a series of events named “Prostate Pep Talk” to each of the CTCA’s locations featuring alumni and current players of the NFL. These events are designed to raise awareness that regular testing and education is necessary to optimal prostate health.
Along with the educational events, LabCorp is offering free screenings to the first 2,000 men who signed up for a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test. PSA testing can indicate an anomaly within the prostate if testing comes back abnormal. When the 2,000 spots get filled up, LabCorp is offering a low cost fee of $25.00 for the PSA to be performed. Patient’s need to schedule the test within six months to still be eligible for the free or reduced price spots.This latest joint venture is a sign of CTCA’s commitment to patient care excellence.
