Every 20 minutes an American man dies from prostate cancer and 1 in 7 American men will have prostate cancer during their lifetimes.
The American Cancer estimates that 22,280 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed this year and 1 in 75 women will be diagnosed during their lifetimes.
Early detection and treatment are vital in managing cancer. When diagnosed and treated in the earliest stages, the five-year survival rate is almost 100% for men with prostate cancer and over 90% for women with ovarian cancer. Prostate exams are recommended for men 40 and older and are generally performed as part of your annual physical exam. Counseling for breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility and annual gynecological exams are included in free preventative care once per year and are recommended for women age 18 and over.
