Prostate Conditions Education Council (PCEC) Comments On New AUA Clinical Guideline On Prostate Cancer Screening

Prostate cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death among American men.[i]  Prostate cancer can be an aggressive disease that is most successfully treated when it is detected early on.  Each year, the PCEC holds Prostate Cancer Awareness Week, dedicated to offering free or low-cost screenings for more than 125,000 men across the U.S. and internationally.  Since the first PCAW in 1989, the program has helped to screen nearly five million men in the U.S., and this number continues to grow each year both at home and internationally.
