Prostate cancer will kill more than 39,000 American men this year, but with early detection, your chances of survival increase dramatically.
Men should be screened for prostate cancer annually after the age of 50 - earlier if they are African American or have a family history of the disease.
To help fight prostate cancer, Loyola University Health System is offering free screenings - including a blood test and an exam by a physician.
