NFL Puts Together Winning Game Plan Against Prostate Cancer
Date:9/18/2017

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men. On any given Sunday 1 in 7 men watching an NFL game will be diagnosed with this disease, but the odds increase to 1 in 5 if they are African American and 1 in 3 if they have a family history. These are stats that no one wants to see up on a scoreboard.

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/BRX9sHPdzoo

An estimated 161,360 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2017 and there are often no symptoms in the early stages of this disease.

Early detection for prostate cancer is key, which is why, for the ninth year, the National Football League (NFL) has teamed up with the Urology Care Foundation—the official foundation of the American Urological Association—on the Know Your Stats About Prostate Cancer® campaign, an initiative to encourage men to know their prostate cancer risk and to talk to their doctor about whether prostate cancer testing is right for them.

Pro Football Hall of Famer and prostate cancer survivor, Michael Haynes partnered with the Urology Care Foundation, YourUpdateTV, and D S Simon Media on a nationwide media tour to discuss how his story gives hope to those newly diagnosed or in treatment, and also reminds families to talk about their health history. Haynes was joined by Brian McNeil, M.D. - Chief of Urology at The University Hospital of Brooklyn to discuss the risks for prostate cancer and the importance of early detection.
