Prostate cancer is the second largest cancer in men worldwide. Men across the globe put razors aside and let facial hair grow in support of Movember, or No Shave November. This global movement brings awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. This yearly event exploded rapidly with its signature concept.

Prostate cancer is the second largest cancer in men worldwide. Men across the globe put razors aside and let facial hair grow in support of Movember, or No Shave November. This global movement brings awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. This yearly event exploded rapidly with its signature concept.

“Movember is a fun way for people to promote awareness about treatment and screening for prostate cancer,” said Dr. Jordan Siegal, Sharp Grossmont Hospital affiliated urologist. “As with many cancers, early detection in prostate cancer leads to better outcomes and that only happens when men are getting screened annually. It’s always great to see all the mustaches out around this time of year because it means the message is being spread.”

There are many ways to bring awareness to men’s health issues and Movember.com (The Movember Foundation) is one of many.

This campaign can be localized, by posting your results on the site and social media getting friends, family and colleagues involved along with the world population that will donate just because of your new styling moustache, goatee or full beard. With its humble beginnings in 2003 more than five million “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sisters” now support the Foundation.

Many families, businesses and groups of friends get together every year to help bring awareness to prostate cancer. Movember.com goes further in this yearly event, raising money and awareness to prostate and testicular cancer, exercise and mental health.

So let the hair grow, create the ultimate moustache and be creative with your style, and wear that light blue ribbon.
