September Brings Awareness to Prostate Cancer

Sun Valley, ID & Fort Worth, TX—OMNI Health Media (OMNI) announces the launch of prostate cancer programs for national prostate cancer awareness month.  Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer death in men, second only to lung cancer. According to American Cancer Society, there will be an estimated 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer and an estimated 29,480 deaths attributable to the disease in the United States during 2014.[1]

Staying informed with the latest news on prevention and screening is an important step in reducing your risk of developing prostate cancer. And, should a diagnosis occur, access to current, in-depth treatment information can help you find the best care.
