One out of seven men will be diagnosed with Prostate cancer at some point of their life. African American men have an alarming increased risk of being diagnosed with Prostate cancer, a 70% higher likelihood, exactly. It is important to know your status. LabCorp and CTCA has decided to team up to give free Prostate cancer testing to men and educate them as well. Men will need to visit their local LabCorp location for their free exam.
