4 in 10 Canadian Men Don’t Know what their Prostate Gland Does

By

According to a national survey, 4 in 10 Canadian men between 20 and 49 don't know their prostate's primary function is to produce fluid in semen and is vital to sexual function. "It's well known men put off seeing their doctors, but it's important for them to take charge of their health, educate themselves, and talk to their doctor about their prostate cancer risk," said Dr. R. Jeffrey Karnes, urologist, Mayo Clinic. "From its function, to PSA testing and prevention, it's critical for men to be informed of their preventative and screening options."
