“Movember” is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health”, by encouraging men to get involved. Prostate health and cancer prevention have been a main focus of the Movember Foundation since it began. Because many aging men face issues regarding prostate health it is important to encourage these men to seek help when they first begin to experience symptoms. These symptoms include burning or painful urination, difficulty starting or stopping urination, frequent urination, blood in the urine, or loss of bladder control. Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, men are encouraged to be aware of family history of cancer and to maintain a healthy lifestyle!
