Men’s Health. Movember.

Across the world, men die an average six years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable. It doesn’t have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives. It doesn’t have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives.


 1. Mental Health

Stay connected. Your friends are important and spending time with them is good for you. Catch up regularly, check in and make time.


70% of men say their friends can rely on them for support, but only 48% say that they rely on their friends. In other words: we’re here for our friends, but worried about asking for help for ourselves. Reaching out is crucial.


You don’t need to be an expert and you don’t have to be the sole solution, but being there for someone, listening and giving your time can be life-saving.


2. Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men. Know the facts and take action early.


Early detection is key.

When detected early, prostate cancer survival rates are better than 98%. Find it late, and those survival rates drop below 26%.


Know the numbers.
  • At fifty, talk to your doctor about prostate cancer and whether it’s right for you to have a PSA test.

  • If you are of African or Caribbean descent or have a father or brother with prostate cancer, you should be having this conversation at forty-five.

Who is at risk?

Your risk of developing prostate cancer increases with age, but that doesn’t mean it’s a disease that only affects old men. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide. Men who are of African or Caribbean descent, and men who have a family history (a brother or father with prostate cancer), are 2.5x more likely to get prostate cancer.


What is a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test?

It’s a simple routine blood test. It’s used to determine the measurement of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) concentration in the blood, it is the primary method of testing for prostate cancer. You should be talking to your doctor about whether testing is right for you.

So what do you need to do?

Visit your physician.Ask about PSA testing.Catch prostate cancer early.


3. Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young Canadian men aged 15 – 29.

Know your nuts. It’s that simple.

The best thing you can do for your testicles is give them a bit of a feel on a regular basis, and if something doesn’t seem right, head to the doctor.


Who’s at risk?

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young Canadian men aged 15 – 29. Men with undescended testes at birth, or who have a family history, like a father or brother who has had testicular cancer, are at an increased risk. And if you’ve had testicular cancer before, there’s also a heightened risk it could return.


What is testicular cancer?

Testicles are responsible for the production of male hormones (mostly testosterone) and sperm. Testicular cancer starts as an abnormal growth or tumor that develops in one or both testicles. There are several types of testicular cancer, but the most common is the germ cell tumour.


If you’ve been diagnosed with testicular cancer

The most important step is to talk to your doctor about treatment choices. You may consider getting a second or third doctor’s opinion.
