Movember: Tips About Prostate Cancer

Movember is the movement during the month of November that brings awareness to prostate cancer and men's health.  Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and the second most common cause of death from cancer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2010 over 196,000 men in the United States were diagnosed with prostate cancer and 28,560 men in the US died from prostate cancer.  This positive approach can lower a man's risk for the disease:
  • a diet high in soy products, vegetables, fish and nuts can help prevent the disease
  • being active makes one healthier overall and boosts the immune system and also decreases chances of the disease
  • regular, routine examinations by a physician lead to early detection and treatment and increases survival rate
