    According to the American Cancer Society, Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men (after skin cancer), but it can often be treated successfully. More than 2 million men in the US count themselves as prostate cancer survivors. National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is observed every September in the United States by health experts and advocates, and individuals concerned with men’s prostate health. Designating a month for the disease serves the purpose of increasing public awareness of the importance of prostate health and screenings, educating about risk factors and symptoms, and advocating for further research on prostate health issues. Urologists at Greenville Health System are the first in the Carolinas equipped with a new 3D-imaging device used to detect prostate cancer, according to a spokesperson for the hospital system. The new system is called Artemis.
