Did you know ? Caught early, prostate cancer is curable! Yet, 880 Quebecers still die from it every year.
Prostate cancer needs to come out of the shadows. This illness is often asymptomatic and surrounded by unfounded taboos, still making men hesitant to ask for an annual screening test to their doctors (APS blood test and rectal examination).
Fast and simple, this screening test is used to detect cancerous tumors at an early stage and greatly improve the success rate of treatments.
