Although not as popular as its cousin, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, September is Prostate Awareness Month.
Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death for men, behind lung cancer. About one in seven men will get prostate cancer during their lifetime. African-American men and men with a family history of prostate cancer have a higher risk of developing the disease. Fortunately, prostate cancer can be treated successfully when found early. Even better, your risk of contracting prostate cancer can be minimized by following a few simple steps.
