Health Minute: Men's Health

Jun 8, 2021

WPSU’s Health Minute is a collaboration with Penn State’s College of Nursing.

June is Men’s Health Month. Let’s take a minute to talk about two forms of cancer that only impact men.

According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer among men, and becomes more prevalent as men get older. Testicular cancer is not as common, but generally impacts younger men between the ages of 20 and 35.

With proper health screenings, such as prostate and self-testicular exams, and an understanding of what signs to watch out for, a person can often detect and treat a problem early.
