It’s September and that means it’s Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. One in seven men will develop prostate cancer in their lives.

Please take time this month to understand and learn more about prostate cancer and to spread the word.  Awareness saves lives.

If you haven’t been checked recently (or ever), make an appointment with your doctor.  It was a screening during a long-overdue physical exam that caught my cancer, and here I am 4 years, 9 months, and 21 days since my diagnosis, still alive and advocating for prostate health.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation offers a great overview for those wanting to learn more.  Check it out here.


On a related note, I go for my next PSA test this week.  Results to follow in my next regularly scheduled post if I have them by then.
