Beatty Observes National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, a month-long effort dedicated to raising awareness about prostate cancer. To mark the occasion, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement:

“At a time when more than 150,000 American men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, and where one in seven men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime, it is crucial that men and their loves ones know and are able to recognize the signs, symptoms and their risk factors. That is why this National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and all year long, I encourage men—especially those over 50 years old—to discuss early detection with their doctor."
