Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Blue Ribbon On Background. Blue

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The American Cancer Society states that in 2020 there will be an estimated 191,930 new cases of prostate cancer. Also, in 2020 there will be an estimated 33,33 deaths from prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the cancer of the prostate, which is located below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Early detection is key for detecting prostate cancer and making treatment easier. The American Cancer Society recommends that screenings should begin at age 40 for men with high risk. High risk includes African American males and men with more than one first-degree relative (brother or father) who had prostate cancer at an early age. Men can reduce their risk for prostate cancer by choosing a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising weekly.
