Letter: Prostate cancer should get same attention as breast cancer
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The Tribune has done a great job covering Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a pink supplement of several pages one day and some feature articles.

I wonder why the same coverage isn't done for prostate cancer during September which is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month? There are more new cases of prostate cancer each year than of breast cancer and Utah has one of the highest incidence rate in the U.S. So I would think the Tribune would devote some coverage to this disease, which claims nearly 30,000 men each year.
