Cancer.org remains a place where people can find comprehensive, detailed information about breast cancer types, risk factors, prevention, screening and early detection, treatment options, and survivorship. #MensHealthWeek #GetScreened #NationalCancerSurvivorMonth
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer.

More than 3.1 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today. Learn more about prostate cancer here: https://bit.ly/3vwY8kU  #MensHealthWeek
It's important to understand the risk factors for male breast cancer — particularly because men are not routinely screened for the disease and don't think about the possibility that they'll get it. 

If several members of your family have had breast or ovarian cancer, or one of your family members has a known BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation, share this information with your doctor. Your doctor may refer you for genetic counseling. #MensHealthWeek  #GetScreened
The purpose of #MensHealthWeek is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
