Learn more about prostate

Over the last few years, men have appeared to be increasingly concerned about their health and this can be seen through the multiplication of initiatives to inform, raise awareness and support causes that are specific to their health.

Here are some figures that show that the situation does indeed deserve our attention:

  • • Men’s average life expectancy is about four years lower than that of women.
  • • One man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
  • • One man in 3 will suffer from prostate disorders from the age of 50.

As part of its contribution to this movement, Familiprix offers you a guide dedicated to prostate disorders. An additional contribution to offer men and their loved ones the opportunity to find answers to their questions and to feel more comfortable talking about them in order to break taboos and get out of isolation.
