September is Ovarian and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
Although affecting opposite sexes, ovarian cancer and prostate cancer share some common risk factors; advancing age, a family history and ethnicity. One in seven men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime while ovarian cancer in women is much less common. Diagnosing these cancers involves having a physical exam by your family doctor along with certain tests. You may not even know that you are at risk. Come and discuss your risks (and if you need a physical exam with testing for these cancers) with your family doctor at Care in the Creek Medical Centre. If you do not have a doctor, come join us!
If you do not have a family physician, DR. ANNELIES NOORDMAN, is accepting new patients. Call 403-949-2457 today to book your appointment!
