'Movember' mustaches raise prostate cancer risk awareness

Second only to skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most diagnosed cancer in American men and is the second leading cause of cancer death.

Yet, with regular screening and treatment, prostate cancer is conquerable, beginning with stimulating awareness of this disease through campaigns such as the "Movember" movement.

This movement, which began in Australia in 2003, encourages men to grow a mustache for the 30 days of November to remind people of the ongoing need to fight this disease.

Prescott, Prescott Valley and Chino Valley men will have the chance to show off their mustaches in support of this campaign by bringing in their photos to the Courier's Prescott office at 1958 Commerce Center Circle or emailing them to editorial@prescottaz.com. The Courier will publish the photos and create a web album online of the men with their Movember mustaches.

POP (Prostate On-Site Project) brought its mobile screening unit to Prescott in September and, of the 71 men tested, seven had out-of-range PSAs (prostate-specific antigen blood scores) and 15 men had abnormal DRGs (digital rectal exams).

Each day during November, the Courier will run a tip on prostate cancer prevention and treatment. If readers have stories of their success beating this disease that they would like to share, please call Karen Despain at 445-3333, ext. 2024.
