Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

It’s that time of year again. Time to remind our friends, family, and coworkers that September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

Even if you don’t think it can happen to you, it can. I’m a classic example of that. There was no family history and, at the ripe old age of 52, I was diagnosed without exhibiting any symptoms whatsoever. Surprise!

There’s a ton of really great organizations out there educating men and their spouses about prostate cancer. You can see many of them on my Resources page.

You don’t have to become an expert on prostate cancer, but you should take time to learn the risk factors, symptoms, different types of prostate cancer, and treatment options. Hopefully, you’ll never have to put any of that newfound knowledge to use, but if you are unfortunate enough to hear those three little words—”You have cancer”—you’ll have a little bit of a head start when it comes to making decisions.

  1. Good on you, Dan. I still read your posts, but have been really busy. I have now been in remission for a few years, but have no illusions that at any time it can come back in hit me. It’s great that more people are talking about prostate cancer these days. It’s the silent killer that creeps up on you and you have no way of telling if you have it other than tests, in most cases. Get a test guys and stay alive.

    Yes, those three words are life changing.
