Give prostate cancer the finger

 

BLUE-SEPTEMBER rgb-640Blue September 2015 is taking on a fresh approach to making men aware of prostate cancer with actor Mark Hadlow fronting a new campaign through media.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand men and the third most common cause of cancer death in men after lung cancer and bowel cancer.

One in 10 men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime, and last year approximately 600 Kiwi men died from prostate cancer – that’s roughly the same number as women who died from breast cancer.

Maori men are 72 per cent more likely to die of prostate cancer once they are diagnosed than non-Maori men.

Don’t die of embarrassment, get tested! The Prostate Cancer Foundation of NZ encourages all men over the age of 40 to have regular prostate checks if there is a family history of prostate cancer.

If you’re between 50-70 then consider an annual prostate check that includes both a PSA blood test and digital rectal examination (DRE).

n Go online to blueseptember.org.nz or facebook for more information or to donate to the cause.
