November begins Men’s Health Awareness month, though it goes by creative names like “No-shave November”, “Movember” & my personal favorite – “Mow-vember”. No matter the name, it is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches and/or beards during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide.
Every man should go see their doctor and have a full physical, and if you are over 50, get your colonoscopy, too. If you are dealing with mental or emotional issues, talk to someone – a friend, your doctor, a counselor – someone. Mental health is just as important as physical health.
