Movember is more than Just a Mo!
November marks the beginning of Movember. This movement has grown from an awareness campaign about prostate cancer to include awareness of Testicular Cancer and mental health and suicide prevention.
Let’s Beat the Odds!
1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with Prostate cancer. Those odds are staggering. But there are many ways to beat those odds. You are not helpless. Early detection can decrease your risks. Talking about it can be beneficial and raise awareness. Researchers all over the world dedicate themselves to this very topic. A collaborate effort happens every day to share information, push for better health care and affordable health care. No one should be denied access to life saving treatments and drugs. As with most cancer treatments there are new frontiers in the way we treat cancer. The focus is on a more personalized treatment. You are an individual with your own genetic history and biology. By examining these factors and much more, doctors today can develop a treatment that is just right for you.
Testicular Cancer occurs most commonly in ages 15-39
Testicular cancer is most commonly found in young men beginning at ages 15 and up. We need to talk about this. If we don’t discuss openly, young men might not get the treatment that they need and that can be so effective. The good news is that testicular cancer has a 95% survival rate. First step, let’s talk about it, raise awareness of symptoms. Let’s collaborate. Let’s share our stories. You are not alone. Let’s make sure that affordable and specific treatments are available for every young male.
6 out of 10 suicides are men
A staggering global average is that one man dies by suicide every minute of the day! This is a shocking statistic yet we must acknowledge it. If you feel in crisis, please contact your local crisis support line. Suicide and mental health is incredibly complex. There are no easy answers. But we have to begin somewhere. By talking about mental health issues, you can share your stories and others can know they are not alone. We are not alone. We are together in this and there are many trained professional ready, willing and able to help. You have to take the first step. We need to foster a culture for men and women where we feel comfortable discussing feelings, emotions, big issues that can overwhelm us. We have to be able to listen. And just like any other health issue, there are not easy answers but there is help and with time, knowledge and specific treatments; we can change those staggering statistics.
For the month of November we’re going to be opening a dialogue and by sharing information and stories specifically focused on men’s health.
