Prostate cancer happen to be the 2nd most common cause of Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO), in elderly men. This means that after Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Prostate Cancer is the next in line causing elderly men from passing out urine.
This cancer is a killer among men, especially in developing countries like Nigeria. However, if detected early enough, there is a 5-year survival rate of 99%.
I saw these photos on twitter (@ProstateCancerCanada and @MensHlthNetwork). Thought I should share it.
The striking thing for all men is that once you are 40 years and above, quickly ask your doctor about Prostate cancer and how you could get tested. Remember that one of the factors determining if the cancer will happen in you is your RACE.
Prostate Cancer have a higher chance of happening happening in blacks. So all black males, well over 40 years must get tested promptly. It is preventable and it has a cure!!!
This is a Prostate Cancer Awareness Post. The photos say it all.
