MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of September as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), Integrated Medical Foundation (IMF) and LUGPA, an association of independent urology group practices, encourage everyone to speak to the men in their lives about the importance of early detection and for medical practitioners to discuss prostate cancer screenings with their patients.

The American Cancer Society expects more than 160,000 men to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 26,000 men to die from the disease in 2017. A leading cause of death in men, the National Cancer Institute estimates that approximately one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

"We have seen time and time again that early detection of prostate cancer greatly enhances a patient's chances of beating the disease, so it is incumbent upon each of us in the health care community to communicate the importance of prostate cancer screenings to our patients and their families," said Dr. Deepak A. Kapoor, President, Advanced Urology Centers of New York, and Clinical Associate Professor of Urology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Prostate cancer is a curable cancer when caught early, and we must do all we can to ensure that we catch every case in time."
