A MAN.

GET AN EXAM

Set aside your fears and get a physical to check for any signs of prostate, testicular and penile cancer.

Gentlemen, we know what’s in your head when you think about going to the doctor. It’s not fun, it’s not pleasant, but trust us, there’s nothing to be afraid of—it’s absolutely necessary. Catching cancer at the earliest stage gives you the best survival rate. And, in terms of prostate and testicular cancer, it may involve nothing more than a simple blood test.

WHO’S AT RISK?

WHO’S AT RISK?

The Center for Disease Control says all men are at risk for prostate cancer, but identified certain groups who are at a higher risk…

African-Americans More likely to get prostate cancer than other men. Twice as likely to die from it than white men. Get it at a younger age, and have more advanced disease when diagnosed.

Family History of Prostate Cancer Men who have a father, son or brother who have had it. Those with three or more from this first-degree group of relatives on the same side may have a type caused by genetic changes that are inherited.

Older Men The older a man is, the greater the chance of getting prostate cancer.

BRCA History The Prostate Cancer Foundation also advised that those with a family history of the BRCA gene mutation should be aware that in addition to breast cancer, this mutation has also been associated with higher risk for prostate cancer.

WHO’S AT RISK?

According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, though penile cancer is rare, there are certain males who should have a heightened awareness of this disease…

Males with HPV Approximately 6 out of 10 cases of penile cancer are caused by an HPV infection.

Males over 50 The average age of diagnosis is 68.

Uncircumcised Males Circumcision at a young age substantially reduces the risk.

Males with Phimosis This is associated with nearly 90% of the cases.

Men Who Received Psoralen This drug, combined with ultraviolet (UV) light, puts males at a higher risk.

Males Who Smoke Though not totally conclusive, this group is said to be at higher risk.

Early detection provides men with a variety of cutting edge options for treatment that provide for long term, cancer-free survival.
