“If you’re like me, you’d rather talk about basketball or anything other than prostate cancer,” says professional basketball Hall-of-Fame player Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
“But we can’t be silent when it comes to our own health. Prostate cancer affects one in eight men in the U.S. I beat it because I was screened and it was detected early.”
“Prostate cancer is often passed on through families. The NBA and the Prostate Cancer Foundation are asking you and your loved ones to know your risks and to get screened.”
