Increasing Prostate Cancer Awareness

Wyoming Cancer Surveillance Program

The Wyoming Cancer Surveillance Program (WCSP) identified prostate cancer as the most common form of cancer in Wyoming, but about the fifth leading cause of cancer death. In 2008, 453 cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed in Wyoming, and 52 men died from prostate cancer.

Considering these data, the month of September was devoted to prostate awareness. WCSP and Comprehensive Cancer Control Program held two tailgating parties on September 3rd and September 10th at University of Wyoming football games to promote awareness. Additionally, blue lights were placed around the capitol and a blue ribbon hung at the capitol for the month of September. The messages for the public included prostate cancer risk factors and screening tests for prostate cancer.
