September marks Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, an important time to focus on prostate health in men. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men, and its early detection is crucial to providing effective treatment. Some types of prostate cancer grow slowly, while others grow more quickly and are more aggressive. Symptoms that can indicate possible prostate cancer include trouble urinating, pelvic discomfort, and erectile dysfunction. Some risk factors for prostate cancer can be increased age, family history, and obesity. Talk to your doctor about whether you should be screened for prostate cancer, based on your medical history.
