It’s Movember. Or No-Shave November.
Or whatever you want to call it.
This month, men are encouraged to grow a mustache or to not shave at all to bring attention to men’s health issues.
Many men (and women, for that matter), lose their hair during cancer treatments. This month, instead of spending money on shaving and grooming products, donate that to your favorite cancer prevention organization.
And men, if you’re between the ages of 15-35, do regular self-exams for testicular cancer. If you find anything unusual, don’t delay, get to your doctor.
If you’re a man of a certain age, see your doctor, and prepare to bend over and cough.
And schedule your colonoscopy.
None of those things are fun or pleasant. But they may save your life.
