September Is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

What’s your reason for getting screened for prostate cancer?

Gary Degen’s reason … family and football.  Maybe you saw Degen’s story in the news or on Fox Sports/NFL Films He won a trip to this year’s Super Bowl. But his is no ordinary story of a football fan winning a dream contest to attend the Super Bowl. Read Degen’s story about beating the odds and being a prostate cancer survivor.

Know your risk for prostate cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. While that number may seem scary, prostate cancer is treatable when caught early. Norton Cancer Institute is dedicated to helping patients combat the disease through innovative treatments and recovery services.

Knowing your risk for developing prostate cancer is the first step in prevention and early detection. During the month of September, learn about your risk by taking our free online Prostate Cancer Risk Assessment.

When you do, you’ll be entered to win a $250 gift card to Home Depot! (See rules)

Information and support

Most men diagnosed with prostate cancer won’t die from it, but it can be a serious and fatal disease. Prostate cancer grows in the prostate gland, which is a small structure in the male reproductive system that surrounds the urethra. To learn more about the development of this disease and treatment options, watch these videos featuring Norton Cancer Institute radiation
oncologist Aaron Spalding, M.D., Ph.D.

If you have had prostate cancer or are currently in treatment, we offer a Prostate Cancer Support Group to discuss experiences and offer support. The group meets on the second Monday of each month from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Norton Cancer Institute Resource Center in Medical Towers South, Suite 164, 234 E. Gray S., in downtown Louisville. Call (502) 629-5500 to register.
