Prostate Cancer Awareness
Aside from skin cancer, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in cis-gender males (those individuals assigned as male at birth).
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimates there were 268,490 new cases in 2022, with a survival rate of 96.8%.
But survival can only happen with early detection. By the time serious symptoms appear, it may be too late.
1 in 8 people assigned male at birth will develop prostate cancer at some point.
Disproportionately, black men are 1.7x more likely to be diagnosed, and more than 2x as likely to die from the disease compared to white men.

During Your Next Annual Health Check-Up...
Not everyone needs to be, nor should be, checked. However there are definitely groups that should consider it at least once a year:
Those aged 55-69,
If you have a family history,
Presenting numerous symptoms (regardless of age),
If are you African American,
Any other conditions that may limit your ability to be treated.
