Introduction this month of the Men's Health Act would create an Office of Men's Health at the Department of Health & Human Services. If passed, the legislation would establish a clearinghouse for men to provide services parallel to the existing Office of Women's Health.

"Creating this office will serve as a preemptive step that could save lives," said Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID), who introduced the legislation in the Senate. "While an Office of Men's Health is not a cure-all, it will assist men to focus on many health problems that can be treated successfully if diagnosed early."

Since being diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer in January 2000, Crapo has become an advocate for men's health issues.

Rep. Duke Cunningham (R-CA), also a prostate cancer survivor, has drafted companion legislation for the House.
