Prostate Cancer: Increasing Awareness

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosis in men (skin cancer is the first). And while the disease may be prevalent, it isn't always lethal — most types of prostate cancers grow and spread slowly, and someone diagnosed may never feel any effects. However, the more aggressive types can be harmful if untreated, so it's important to be able to recognize the warning signs. Educate yourself on how to spot, treat and prevent the disease.
