Did you know that in 2018 there will be an estimated 164,690 new prostate cancer diagnoses in the United States? That 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime?
Or that, on average, a woman in the U.S. will live five years longer than a man?
Men face a variety of unique health challenges. They’re not always easy to handle, and social stigmas can make it hard for men to receive the preventative care they need before they ever get sick.
Across our state, we can help break the stigma. June 11 - 17, 2018 is Men's Health Week.
Talk to friends and family about your health. Encourage those you know to go to the doctor regularly and get early treatment for disease.
Then, plan some fitness activities: Get your annual physical exam. Have a prostate screening exam. And be more active to maintain a healthy weight — especially now, during our beautiful California summer!
