1 in every 3 males will get cancer in their lifetime

Cancer Awareness

"1 in every 3 males will get cancer in their lifetime.”

Cancer that’s diagnosed at an early stage, before it’s had the chance
to spread is more likely to be treated successfully.

Male Cancer Awareness Saves Lives.

Being the most common type of cancer among young men (15-37 years), most of men are completely unaware of testicular cancer. Worldwide, there are 48,500 new patients diagnosed with testicular cancer each year; 8,900 of these men will die.

As for prostate cancer, it mainly occurs in older men. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 66. Both types of cancer are curable if detected at the early stages. Shanab, in light of this, stresses the significance of self-examination in detecting testicular cancer. Similarly, DRE (Digital Rectal Examination)/PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) are two major exams for early detection of prostate cancer.

Testicular Cancer

Is the most common type of cancer among young men (15-37 years). Worldwide, there are 48,500 new patients diagnosed with testicular cancer each year; 8,900 of these men will die.

What is Testicular Cancer?
  • Testicular cancer usually strikes men between the ages of 15 and 35.
  • Testicular cancer occurs in the testicles (testes), which are located inside the scrotum, a loose bag of skin underneath the penis. The testicles produce male sex hormones and sperm for reproduction.
  • Testicular cancer is highly treatable, even when cancer has spread beyond the testicle.
Prostate Cancer

About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 66.

What Is Prostate Cancer?
  • Cancer is a cellular disease.
  • It is a disordered and abnormal cell growth.
  • In prostate cancer, as in other types of cancer, cells grow out of control and form tumors.
  • If the tumor is within the gland, the cancer is said to be localized and curable.
  • If the cancer escapes the gland, it is considered incurable.
  • Early detection before the cancer escapes the gland is very important.
