September is annually recognized as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Ten years ago I had no idea what the prostate was. But it’s second only to skin cancer in annual detections and 1 in every 6 men will develop cancer of the prostate.
As a prostate cancer survivor, I urge all men to make sure that you receive appropriate age & risk-related screenings. It was through a blood PSA test, and a follow-up tissue biopsy that I learned I had cancer. Do yourself and your family a big favor. Follow the guidelines and have a checkup if you’re due!
