Prostate Cancer Awareness

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men in the United States.  The weight of this illness is felt not only by the men living with and fighting prostate cancer, but also by their families, friends, and communities who rally to care for their loved ones.

For information about prostate cancer visit MedlinePlus for general overviews, information regarding diagnosis, treatment, prevention, nutrition, and so much more.Man
