Men this will be the last Men’s Health Month article.  We were going to post an article about prostate cancer screening, but after review we realized that were many new developments in the arena of prostate cancer screening so we will postpone that article for a couple of months.

This last article discusses screening for another important cancer for the African American community – colon cancer.  Listen to Terrence Howard talk about why he got screened.  It is personal for him because his mother died from colon cancer at the age of 56.  Don’t become a statistic, ask your doctor about colon screening if you are 50 years of age and older.  Some experts believe that African Americans should start colon screening at 45 years old.  Colon cancer is truly a preventable disease.
