There are several known risk factors for developing prostate cancer including age, race, family history & genetics, obesity, and lifestyle.

But what can YOU do, right now, today, to reduce your risk?

Experts tend to agree:

  • Heart Healthy Diet = Prostate Healthy Diet
  • Get at least 30 minutes of exercise every day
  • Maintain a Healthy Weight
  • See Your Doctor for Annual Physicals
    • Keeping your cholesterol under control may also help to reduce risk
    • Work with your Physician to keep your prostate healthy by addressing other common issues such as inflammation and enlargement
    • Make sure you have an annual prostate screening and keep track of your results! Early detection of prostate cancer can be critical to survival.
