Blue September is a fun way of delivering a serious message about ‘facing up to cancer in men’.
Blue is for men and we lose too many of them to prostate, lung, skin, bowel and testicular cancer.
Did you know?
1 in 2 Australian men will have been diagnosed with cancer at some stage of their life by age 85.
Each year, more than 22,000 Australian men die of cancer.Even though less than half of the Australian population are men, more men than women are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Some of the most common cancers causing death in men are: lung cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, melanoma and testicular cancer. Unfortunately the list doesn’t stop there. There are many other cancers that commonly affect men, have a high mortality rate and which are often preventable through lifestyle choices. These include cancers of the kidney,
liver, head and neck, oesophagus and bladder.
