September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to affect Canadian men.
  • 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed with the disease in his lifetime.
  • An estimated 23,100 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year.
  • The survival rate for prostate cancer can be over 90% when detected early.
  • Those with a family history of the disease, or those of African or Caribbean descent, are at a greater risk of developing prostate cancer.
  • Prostate Cancer Canada recommends that men get a PSA test in their 40s to establish their baseline.

Therefore, Mayor Norm Mayer, on behalf of City Council of the City of Camrose, proclaims September 2017 as "Prostate Cancer Awareness Month" in the City of Camrose.
