Prostate Cancer Month: The public is invited to take part in active activities


In November, not only in Lithuania, but also across Europe, it is intended to prevent prostate cancer. This year, the three organizations gathered for the common goal of raising the issue of men talking even louder and engaging as many citizens as possible in active prostate cancer care activities. One of the most important is the "Uava Runaway" final event of November for men not only for men.

Prostate cancer in Europe is diagnosed today at 450,000. men The number of symptoms of prostate cancer diagnosed in Lithuania is up to 500. Initial coagulation does not show clear symptoms, so men are encouraged to perform a PSA test even when they feel great.

Pauls Rakštys, head of the Society for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer, believes that prostate cancer is becoming more and more diagnosed at young age, and that's why it is not just for the elderly to worry about their health.

"Earlier, because of this illness, it was necessary to check at age 50. Today, prostate cancer research has to be done over 40 years, especially for those whose family members have cancer," says P Rakštys.

Every year in November, various activities are being organized to encourage men to take PSA examinations, not to be afraid to speak strong about prostate cancer and to encourage their health to care for their loved ones.

This year, three organizations – the Society of Prostate Cancer, bearded November and the flight of the US – have joined forces to raise awareness to prevent prostate cancer this year.

The latter are organizing for the fourth consecutive year the final bearded event of November, which started with the breed of friends and grew up in an annual tradition attended by more than a hundred participants.

"In March, all marathons end, people move less, so we thought it was very nice to grow rabbits and whiskers and spend time on the last Sunday of the month to run. you can find time to come to the event, you can spend an hour and a visit to the doctor the next day, "says Modest Bacys, one of the organizers of Usa Running.

Interest in this event is increasing every year. This year's course is being prepared at the Botanical Garden of the University of Vilnius on November 25th. It is expected to attract up to 500 participants. The initiative is funded by the pharmaceutical companies Ipsen and Sanofi.

Not only men, but also women and children are invited to the "Ufa Running" event. "We are expecting everyone who can spread a message about prostate cancer prevention in their relatives, and women and children can encourage their family to conduct research," says Bacys.
