Prostate Cancer & Breast Cancer

Prostate Cancer & Breast Cancer

Did you know that breast cancer and prostate cancer have almost identical statistics?

Prostate cancer is just as common in men as breast cancer is in women.

Both cancers will have over 233,000 cases diagnosed each year

They even share pathologic similarities, each having a gray-zone diagnoses and pre-cancerous lesions.

So what is the difference?

Due to increased awareness for breast cancer, women are more educated, knowledgeable and prone to screening early and often for breast cancer

Men statistically speaking are generally less educated, and adverse to screening.

How do we change this?

Raising awareness for prostate cancer is critical so that more attention can be brought to this disease.

Early detection is not only critical, it can also save the life of a loved one.
