PI Medical calls attention to November 'prostate cancer month'

Every November, prostate cancer is the focus of attention for health care providers and patients. It is a disease that affects 1 in 10 men, especially later in life. For example, this disease can already occur in men as young as 50 years. As specialists in medical imaging, we contribute to the detection and removal of prostate cancer. Therefore, we pay special attention to this topic this month.

Early detection is key

Approximately 2,500 men in the Netherlands die from prostate cancer every year. The importance of early detection cannot be overemphasized, as prostate cancer usually shows no symptoms in the early stages and is often only noticed at an advanced stage. By then, treatment is often made difficult, and quality of life can be severely compromised.


In November, men aged 50 and older are widely encouraged to become aware of the risk of prostate cancer. November is also known as "Movember," a month when men grow their mustaches as an action to draw attention to prostate cancer. The goal is to encourage men to get checked early, so that any diagnosis and treatment can take place in time.
