September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, a time dedicated to increasing public understanding of the disease, including its prevalence, screening and treatment options. This year, we are pleased to take part in helping men and their loved ones become aware of this disease with our #KnowYourScore Sweepstakes.
Prostate cancer screening is one of the best ways for men to protect themselves against prostate cancer. The 4Kscore delivers an individual man’s percent risk of aggressive prostate cancer ranging from <1% to >95% if a prostate biopsy were performed. However, many men may not understand their test result numbers and what they mean with regards to their risk of disease. That is why we are encouraging men to #KnowYourScore and talk with their physicians about what it means to them.
- 4Kscore result <7.5%. The patient is at low risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer.
- 4Kscore result 7.5-19%. The patient is at intermediate risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer.
- 4Kscore result ≥20%. The patient is at high risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer.
