A national organization committed to men’s health, PCEC is the nation’s leading resource for information on prostate health. The PCEC is dedicated to saving lives through awareness and the education of men, the women in their lives, as well as the medical community about prostate cancer prevalence, the importance of early detection, and available treatment options, as well as other men’s health issues. The Council – comprised of a consortium of leading physicians, health educators, scientists and prostate cancer advocates – aims to conduct nation wide screenings for men and perform research that will aid in the detection and treatment of prostate conditions.
PCEC is not only the national leader in providing prostate cancer screenings for men in all stages of the disease; PCEC is also the national leader in increasing awareness and education on prostate disease. Our education and awareness campaigns include a wide variety of forums and have expansive reach.
PCEC is also very proud to be leading the nation in prostate cancer marker awareness and making these markers accessible to all men!
Prostate Cancer Biomarkers
Biomarkers are making a significant impact on the diagnosis of prostate cancer! What is a prostate cancer marker? As defined by the National Cancer Institute, a biomarker is a biological molecule found in blood, other body fluids, or tissues that is a sign of a normal or abnormal process, or of a condition or disease. A biomarker may be used to see how well the body responds to a treatment for disease or condition.
