We are all about
Prostate Health

At the PA Prostate Cancer Coalition, we put all of our blood, sweat and tears into educating men about prostate cancer and prostate health. We’ve lost far too many fathers, brothers, and husbands to prostate cancer, and it’s time to fight back.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. Did you know that almost as many men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in a year as women are with breast cancer? The mortality rates are similar, too.

Luckily, prostate cancer is very treatable when found early.
