PREVENTIVE CARE BIAS
I knew of men that died of prostate cancer in their early 50s. I am at that age now. Many times, as can be seen with this group, early detection can save lives. We must promote that PSA screenings not be deemed useless. The test works. Proper training of doctors on how to proceed with the results is what needs attention. Breast cancer mammograms at 40 were once deemed to be unsupported until enough people spoke out and changed that. We need to do the same. Also, breast and cervical cancer preventive care is now fully covered. However, prostate and testicular screenings will be denied if one can’t afford the out-of-pocket costs only because men are the recipients. The gender bias in healthcare must stop. Please sign this petition so all that apply can receive preventive care. Thank you.
