Man Up Mahoning Valley and HMHP encourage men to participate in Movember

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - One in six American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. 

It's the second most common cancer among American men and claims 30,000 lives a year. 

Routine screenings are the best way to identify prostate cancer, but an unusually high percentage of men in the Mahoning Valley skip regular screenings. 

In an effort to change that, Man Up Mahoning Valley and Humility of Mary Health Partners are encouraging local men to grow facial hair this 'Movember' to raise awareness about the need for annual screenings, which should begin at age 40.
