Around 1 in 8 men[1] will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime, making it the most common cancer in men[2]. Although prostate cancer can affect men of all ages and ethnicities, it is particularly prevalent amongst black men and men over 65[3].

Cancer is never nice to talk about. But, it is important to know what to look out for so you can catch prostate cancer early on. It's also helpful to learn how you can help lower your chances of catching the disease. Luckily, there are several effective screening options for prostate cancer, meaning doctors can often treat it before it spreads. In general, the survival rates are high for this type of cancer.

We've put together a helpful flyer that covers the following: 

  • Common prostate cancer symptoms.
  • How you can help prevent prostate cancer.
