Did you know that 1.2 million biopsies a year lead to 240,000 prostate cancer diagnoses and 30,000 deaths? I did know that prostate cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer related death in the United States but actually seeing the numbers? Wow! That is why it is important that we all get educated about this form of cancer.
I lost my grandfather to bone marrow cancer. I lost my grandmother to lung cancer. My sister-in-law is currently living with terminal brain cancer. I hate cancer. Any way that I can share on this website about cancer and early detection, I will. Education is important.
What is Prolaris?
Prolaris is a genetic test for prostate cancer from Myriad Genetics Laboratories that combines traditional risk factors with molecular assessment. Prolaris is the only test that measures how fast prostate cancer cells are dividing. The information obtained from this test greatly impacts the treatment choices that someone diagnosed with Prostate cancer would choose.
When 1 and 6 men are estimated to receive a prostate cancer diagnosis, a genetic test like this is timely. The men in your life are worth it!
