Video: NFL Season Kicks Off With Campaign to 'Know Your Stats About Prostate Cancer'
Date:9/16/2009

BALTIMORE, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- While most men might know the stats of their favorite NFL player, they are likely unaware of other important statistics that could one day save their lives. As a result, the American Urological Association (AUA) Foundation and the National Football League (NFL) are teaming to encourage men to "Know Your Stats about Prostate Cancer," the second leading cause of cancer death for American men. Men and their loved ones can visit www.KnowYourStats.org for information about prostate cancer and where to find free or low-cost screening locations.

One in every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. To fight this deadly disease, the American Urological Association (AUA) has issued new guidelines recommending that men 40 and older talk with their doctors about prostate cancer testing. A physical exam and simple blood test to establish a baseline PSA (prostate-specific antigen) score today could help save a life later.

"We encourage men to be as passionate about their health as they are about their favorite NFL teams and players," said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The relationship between the AUA Foundation and the NFL began in 2007 when the NFL Player Care Foundation began implementing prostate cancer screenings conducted by the AUA Foundation. The NFL Player Care Foundation was created in 2007 to address health and quality of life issues encountered by retired players.

To promote September's Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, 27 retired NFL Hall of Fame players recorded a public service announcement to urge men
