But don’t let that stop you from taking care of your health now. There is no better time than now to think about your prostate health.
If you don’t know what your prostate is or what it does, you’re certainly not alone. Most men don’t, but you really should. More than 30 million men suffer from prostate conditions that negatively affect their quality of life.
According to ProstateHealthGuide.com, prostate problems affect many men of all ages…
- Over 50% of men in their 60s and as many as 90% in their 70s or older have symptoms of an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
- Each year approximately 220,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 30,000 will die of it.
- Prostatitis is an issue for men of all ages and is the most common prostate problem for men under age 50.
