As Packer fans get excited for this year’s football season, the American Urological Association (AUA) Foundation and the National Football League (NFL) are gearing up for another year of encouraging men to “Know Your Stats About Prostate Cancer®.” Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men. Now in its fourth year, the campaign is bringing the message of education to men and their loved ones about prostate health.
Register for this presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 7 to learn critical health information for men, ages 40 and older. Because prostate cancer is most treatable when caught and managed early, the AUA recommends that men 40 and older talk with their doctors about prostate cancer and any potential risks they face. Men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer should know that not all prostate cancers require treatment and that not every treatment is perfect for every man. If you are diagnosed with prostate cancer, talk to your doctor about what your treatment options are and which one may be best for you.
