Let's talk about prostate cancer

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. According to Prostate Cancer Canada, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian men. Approximately 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. The good news is that the death rate has been declining significantly in recent years due to improved testing for prostate cancer and better treatment options.
