Prostate cancer month: the public is invited to engage in active activities



In November, not only in Lithuania, but also in Europe, it is aimed at the prevention of prostate cancer. This year, these three organizations have teamed up for the common goal of raising the issue of men to speak even more loudly and involve as many citizens as possible in the activities of active prostate cancer care. One of the most important is the final November "Uava Runavai" event for men, not just 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. Classification in early stages does not show clear symptoms, so men are encouraged to carry out a test of a specific specific antigen (PSA) even when they feel great.

Pauls Rakhtis, head of the Society for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer, believes that prostate cancer is increasingly diagnosed in the younger age, and therefore not only older men should be concerned about their health.

"Earlier, due to this disease, it had to be checked at age 50. Today, prostate cancer research has to be done over 40 years, especially for those whose family members have cancer," says P. Rakhtis.

Every year, in November, various activities are organized to encourage men to perform PSA tests without fear of loud talking about prostate cancer and to encourage their health to care for their loved ones.

This year, three organizations – the Association for Prostate Cancer, November Brad, and the American Escape – have teamed up to raise awareness about the prevention of prostate cancer this year.

For the fourth year in a row, they organized the finest bred November event, which began with a friend's race and grew to an annual tradition that included more than a hundred participants.

"In March, all marathons were completed, people were moving less, so we thought it was a great time for raising rabbits and mustaches and spending the last week of the month running. The key idea is that if you can find the time to get to the event, you can The next day we spend an hour and a visit to a doctor, "says Modest Bacis, one of Usa Running's organizers.

Interest in this event grows every year. This year's route is being prepared at the Botanical Garden of the University of Vilnius, where on November 25th. It is planned to attract as many as 500 participants. The initiative is sponsored by pharmaceutical companies Ipsen and Sanofi.

Not only men, but also women and children are referring to the "Ufa Running" event. "We are waiting for everyone who can spread a message about the prevention of prostate cancer in the circle of their relatives. After all, women and children can invite their family to explore," says Baci.
