What CDC Is Doing About Prostate Cancer

CDC's prostate cancer activities include—

  • Conducting research and developing materials that explore how best to communicate about informed decision making related to prostate cancer screening and treatment.
  • Enhancing prostate cancer data in cancer registries, especially information about the stage of disease at the time of diagnosis, patterns of care, and the race and ethnicity of men with prostate cancer.
  • Sponsoring research on men's and health care providers' knowledge and awareness of prostate cancer screening.
  • Monitoring the prostate cancer activities identified in local comprehensive cancer control plans.
  • Participating in various prostate cancer conferences, workshops, and seminars to continue collaboration with colleagues and other partners.

These activities will further efforts to develop appropriate public health strategies for prostate cancer, increase sharing of screening-related information between providers and their patients, and advance CDC's overarching goal of helping older adults live better, longer.
