Cause/A Cause for Concern

I've seen instances of both on the internet, and I was wondering if one is more correct than the other. For example: "This issue (e.g. pollution of the Pacific last week) is cause for concern" vs. "This issue is a cause for concern".

Thank you!

    I think it sounds a little bit odd if you omit the "a" there, but I would hesitate to say it's actually wrong.
