Prostate Cancer kills 1 out of 7 men annually yet many men do not take the simplest steps to prevent it. A simple test called the PSA test can detect the potential of this killer disease before it can get a strangle-hold and become a serious problem.
The National Football League Alumni Association, The Cancer Treatment Centers of America,and LabCorp are running an awareness campaign, called Prostate Pep Talk, to make men aware of the simple PSA test in order to save lives. Former NFL coaches Bill Cower, Herman Edwards, and Dick Vermeil are spokesmen for the cause and they are urging men who are age 50 and over to get the test.
Men can get the test done for free between September 1 and October 15 of 2017, and after that for just $25 at any of the 1,700 plus LabCorp facilities across the nation. The blood test is very easily done and only takes a few minutes. The test is then sent to your doctor for evaluation. It is recommended that the test is done once a year.
LabCorp is a national medical testing facility and Cancer Treatment Centers of America have been treating cancer patients for the past 30 years with their proprietary Integrated Treatment Method which individualizes each patient’s treatment. According to CTCA each patient reacts differently to cancer thus an individualized approach is made for that patient.

All of the doctors at CTCA are specialists in the various fields of cancer.
