The Canadian Cancer Society website reports some startling estimates for the third leading cancer among men:

  • 23,600 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. This represents 24% of all new cancer cases in men in 2014.
  • 4,000 men will die from prostate cancer. This represents 10% of all cancer deaths in men in 2014.
  • On average, 65 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer every day.
  • On average, 11 Canadian men will die from prostate cancer every day.

From its modest beginnings in Australia, Movember continues to grow as an event across the word. As more and more countries join the cause, Canada continues to add to the 574 million dollars raised since 2003. From milk moustaches to wispy bristles to a full handle bar, Movember continues to raise money and awareness about Prostate cancer.
