Statistics prove Movember important movement
We've been having fun all month with Movember here on Action News This Morning.
We have time lapse video of our friend Chris Ackerman of his growth. Plus we have Jags O-line photos, Curtis Dvorak and others. Dr. Ali Kasraeian said he's had great feedback about this year's activities.
But he also has some serious statistics that makes embracing the Movember movement very important.
1. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
2. AUA (American Urological Association) recommends in favor of prostate cancer screening starting at the age of 40.
3. Prostate cancer screening should include a PSA (lab test) and DRE (digital rectal exam) starting at age of 40.
4. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men age 15-35.
