Beatty Promotes Importance of 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:

“The American Cancer Society estimates over 174,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year. As with all diseases, early detection can make all the difference. 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. Now is the time to take greater control of your health."
