27 Community Connection partner Brownie's Septic & Plumbing is proud to support Prostate Cancer Awareness Month by urging men to #GetYourPipesChecked. Early detection is key for treating prostate cancer, especially for men who are at hereditary risk or over 40.
Prostate cancer is 1.6 times more common and 2.4 times more deadly among African-American men than Caucasian men.
1 in 7 men is affected by prostate cancer in his lifetime.
One man dies from prostate cancer every 19.1 minutes.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in U.S. men, and the 4th most common tumor diagnosed worldwide.
Take this month to talk to your fathers, brothers and sons about prostate cancer. It just might save a life. Join us in the fight for a cure.
