Testicular and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

In case you’re wondering why you’re seeing so many men with moustaches these couple of weeks, it’s because moustaches are being grown to spread awareness on testicular and prostate cancer as well as men’s suicide. In other words, November is the month to highlight issues regarding men’s physical and mental health.
According to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, “as men increase in age, their risk of developing prostate cancer increases exponentially. About 6 in 10 cases are found in men over the age of 65.” Therefore, it is crucial that men have annual checkups for any strange lumps or swelling, or in case of unusual pain during urination. Early detection can ensure a full recovery from prostate cancer.
Many men might also refrain from discussing or seeking help regarding any mental health issues they might be suffering. It is important to keep in mind that our psychological health is just as important as our physical one. Therapists and mental health experts are the most suitable to help patients deal with depression, and our job is to encourage the men in our lives to seek such help when deemed necessary, and before it’s too late.

Let’s stand together for men’s well-being. How? Start by growing a mustache. Start by talking about men’s issues.
