It’s nearly Movember – when the razors get put away and the mustache combs come out of hiding.
We at The Urology Group are proud to recognize Movember, the annual month-long event with the goal of ‘changing the face’ of men’s health, particularly regarding prostate and testicular cancer.
Gender is one of the most consistent predictors of health and life expectancy. For men, this is not good news given that, on average, we die six years earlier than women. Among other health issues, the impact of prostate and testicular cancer is significant, with prostate cancer being the most common non-skin cancer in men worldwide and the number of cases expected to almost double to 1.7 million cases by 2030. About 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
