Maintaining good health and self care is a yearlong mission, and there is no better time than National Men’s Health Month to highlight important information about how cancer affects the lives of men, 40 percent of whom will receive a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives.
For American men, the three most common cancers are prostate, lung and colorectal, and unlike other racial groups, Hispanic men are at greater risk of colorectal cancer than they are lung cancer, which remains the leading cause of death for all races. Skin and bladder cancers are also prevalent among men.
While survival rates beyond a cancer diagnosis continue to rise, more can be done to keep men informed about signs, risks and prevention. Help raise awareness by learning the basics for what men can do to improve their health.
