Get Checked For Prostate Cancer This Month

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month---and the head of the local group for survivors is urging men to get tested early and often. 

Reverend Doug Moore telling Common Council it's more common than you might think, with 1 in 7 men recieving the diagnosis in their lifetimes.

There will be over 23,000 men diagnosed in Canada this year--but the good news is 90% of cases are curable if they're caught early. 

Men are advised to start getting tested at 40 or earlier if they have a family history.
