Fact: Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that begins in the gland cells of the prostate, which is found only in males. It affects over 200,000 men each year.
“SUPPORT PROSTATE CANCER PREVENTION”
The Silent Killer
Men over the age of 40 need to be more aware of what prostate cancer is. In the last 10 years, prostate cancer has become one of the most common reasons of death among men over 40. Unfortunately, it spreads quietly and quickly. It is natural for people to be denial as we all think that such things would never happened to us, but guess what? We all are at risk. There is no male immune to this condition as it affects about one in every six men, particularly African-American men. Honestly, prostate cancer does not care if you are Hispanic, white or black, as long as you are a man!
