With the high potential of all men being challenged with prostate cancer, farmers are no exception. I often think dairy farmers take better care of their cows, than themselves. There are no "paid sick-days" for farmers. Healthy or not, the chores still need to be done. So why not be proactive and get that routine health exam?
Did you know...
- More than 90% of all prostate cancers are discovered while they are either localized (confined to the prostate) or regional (nearby).
- The five-year survival rate for men diagnosed with prostate tumors discovered at these stages is nearly 100%.
- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, excluding skin cancer.
