Men’s Health Month is an opportunity to increase awareness of issues impacting the health and wellness of men, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, skin cancer, heart disease, colon cancer and hypertension.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer is one of the most common cancers in men.  1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in their lifetime.  1 in 5 African American men.

What is Prostate Cancer?  Prostate Cancer is cancer that grows in the prostate.  Usually, it grows slowly and with no signs or symptoms in its early stages.  If it stays confined to the prostate, it may not cause serious harm.  However, while some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or even no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.

More advanced stages of Prostate Cancer may exhibit symptoms of:

  • Decreased force in the stream of urine
  • Blood in semen
  • Discomfort in the pelvic area
  • Trouble urinating
  • Bone pain
  • Erectile dysfunction

Any symptoms that concern you, you should seek advice from your Physician.
