NYC, 10 Sep 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, Vantage Health is a collection of oncology outpatient facilities, focused on bringing local, compassionate, and individualized cancer care to patients all over New York City. Prostate cancer is a very serious problem that is often diagnosed far too late and giving patients a smaller chance at survival. Vantage Health knows this which is why they are organizing two massive free prostate screening and awareness events on 9/12 at 15806 Northern Boulevard, Flushing, New York, 11358 and on 9/25 at 2101 Avenue X, Brooklyn, New York, 11235.

Every year close to 14,500 men in New York are diagnosed with prostate cancer making prostate cancer the second most common form of cancer among men in New York City, after skin cancer. It often grows slowly, with no symptoms in the early stages. Ultimately, it’s estimated that around 680 men will die of prostate cancer in New York. Statistics also show that Black men have twice as high a chance of dying from prostate cancer as White, Latino, or Asian/Pacific Islander men do.

“We need to spread the message to all communities that getting a prostate screening is critically important and there are so many resources available to help immediately.” Summer Sharaf, CEO of Vantage Health, said when reached out for comment.
