Prostate cancer is as common as breast cancer, but I guess people feel like there is something more sensual about rubbing a breast as opposed to taking a finger in your ass. Breasts fed you as a baby, but your dad's prostate made ejaculation and conception possible.

Rubbin boobs while a finger goes up the bum.

Yeah, but if you start wearing low-cut pants to attract females, you'll have a bit of difficulty with the cops. (Trust me, I've tried)

In New Zealand we genuinely have a month to promote Testicular and Prostate cancer in men, it's in November. We call it Movember and men grow (or attempts to grow) a Mo. Great fun and you can sponser people for their mo to raise money for the cause

UK has Movember for Testicular Cancer and Prostate Cancer awareness, its pretty fun, everyone who participates grows a mustache/beard while collecting funds for the charity.

November is prostate cancer awareness month and december is testicular
Did you know that? If you didn't, OP has a point.
User avatar #20 to #19 - davidispissed (10/13/2013) [-]
and february is black awareness month. I think that covers the worst cancer there.

So for November you don't shave, what do you do for December?

Well the list goes: No Shave November, Don't Shave December and Manuary.

I recall there recently being a story of a guy who went to 6 different clinics giving free examinations who wouldn't check for cancer on him because he was a guy.

I`m afraid I am too.

I can`t step outside without degrading or raping women. It`s something in me that comes out when I see women. I have to assert my dominance and beat them.

I`m so sorry i`m a man but it can`t be helped.

I'd wish more people spread more awareness of ovarian cancer, but admittedly that's a self-serving desire since my girlfriend does have that one.

Breast cancer = Boobs+Cancer
You cant compete with that man
User avatar #191 - daentraya (10/14/2013) [-]
I'm tired of pink ribbons and boobs. You know what i want to support? Testicular cancer. I want to have blue balls sold as a sign of support and the bra bun packaging to make a pair of buns resemble balls with a bit of hair. Boobs may be wonderful and all, but loosing just one is not as big a tragedy as loosing your family jewels, your ability to get children, your manhood itself.
#179 - WhatIsGwaning (10/14/2013) [-]
first thing's first, testicular cancer gets a **** ton of awareness like breast cancer does.
another reason breast cancer gets a lot of attention is because it is one of the most common, and while 46% of the population is female, thats a lot of cancer opportunities
back in march, my grandad had a cancerous lump removed from the side of his face, it was a cancer that no one in my family had ever heard of but we didnt care because there was treatment for it
if you feel people should be more aware, why don't you get off your lazy bollocks and raise awareness toward a cancer of your choice??
breast cancer probably gets the most money raised for it, which is why everyone knows about it
User avatar #181 to #179 - jukuku (10/14/2013) [-]
Men can get breast cancer too and no you don't have to have man titties. Some guy had a painful lump in his breast and he went to get a free exam that was advertised everywhere. He went to 5 different places to get his free exam and was denied every time because he was a a man. That is ****** up.
User avatar #182 to #181 - WhatIsGwaning (10/14/2013) [-]
you're exactly right, i totally forgot men could get it too! i forget men carry the brca1 gene

"Men with a mutated BRCA gene have an increased risk of male breast cancer."

i may be mistaken, but i believe breast cancer and prostate cancer are the most common forms of cancer and are gender specific (in most cases). each one gets an entire month dedicated to it... so what's the big deal?

actually men get breast cancer as well, but women have more breast tissue and therefore a larger chance of being affected I believe. I think it's just the movement for breast cancer awareness has been bigger.
User avatar #79 to #78 - Leopard (10/14/2013) [-]
Prostate cancer is not advertised as much as breast cancer. I don't even know the month, nobody here does.
User avatar #83 to #79 - casedlsix (10/14/2013) [-]
oh, really? where do you live? in my part of canada prostate cancer awareness month (november) is just as well known as breast cancer awareness month.
User avatar #85 to #83 - Leopard (10/14/2013) [-]
Ontario Canada. And you mean movember? The no-shave month? Ohhh, I see.
Still, I see breast cancer posters, bands, ribbons, awareness events. But nothing like that from prostate cancer.

strange. i live in saskatchewan and i what you described for both... i suppose it's not very well spread across the country.
#70 - cortisol (10/14/2013) [-]
breast cancer can spread quickly to lymph nodes specialy if it is the upper lateral portion. Plus breast cells divide very slowly so breast cancer along with ovarian cancer are one of the hardest to treat (drugs attack only cells in the division stage, the faster a cell divides the more aggresive the cancer is but the chance of treating and curing it is also higher) id know my mom has it =P

What about Lung Cancer? One of the biggest cancer killers. I don't see a march for Lung Cancer survivors, mostly because very few actually survive.

1 in every 9 women gets breast cancer. I dont know how the statistics are for other types of cancer (like prostate). But 1 in 9. Thats alot.

In australia at least its the same statistic with prostate cancer.

Breast cancer is also already one of the most survivable types of cancer there is.
User avatar #27 to #14 - lyiat ONLINE (10/13/2013) [-]
One in six of Men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. That's 17% compared to Breast Cancer, which is 11%
User avatar #84 to #27 - lyiat ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
Other notable facts. The mortality rate for both cancers are the same. One in thirty six people ultimately die as a result of the cancer. Men can get breast cancer, women can NOT get prostate cancer.

So, prostate cancer is more widespread, only affects men, and is just as deadly as breast cancer.

Breast cancer is less widespread, but affects men and women.
User avatar #95 to #27 - dammitcarlos (10/14/2013) [-]
Yes, but you are most likely to get it when you are older and close to death anyways. It does not spread as easily as breast cancer, and even if it manages to be ignored for years on end and spreads, you can still live for many more years with it. With breast cancer, only 70% of women live longer than 5 years, and of those 70%, only 70% will live longer than 10 years.
User avatar #97 to #95 - lyiat ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
I don't know where the hell you're getting these statistics, because the death rate for both cancers is one in thirty six as of 2013 according to the National Health Council.
User avatar #98 to #97 - dammitcarlos (10/14/2013) [-]
But you can't just look at the death rates. Say there were 2 types of viruses, virus a and virus b. Both killed 50% of it's hosts. Virus A kills them within 3 years, while virus B kills within 30. Both have the same death rate, but people carrying virus B have a much better chance at living a long life.

And, for the record? Steve Jobs died one and a half years after they found out he had PC. So, doubly no. Your neat little bow saying, 'Breast Cancer is worse' doesn't work out. They are equally bad and deserve equal attention, as do the rest of the cancer spectrum.
User avatar #104 to #98 - lyiat ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
A one in thirty six mortality rate is roughly 3%. If prostate cancer is going to kill you, it will kill you, most likely, within 15 years. Not 30.

Breast cancer is far more complicated, however, because it has various stages with larger variants of lethality (Prostate Cancer has varying stages as well, but they are even furtherly varied rather than Stage 1, 2, 3, ect). Stage One and Two are both 100% survival rate past five years. Everything beyond that begins lowering chances (Stage 2 is about 93%, Three is 72%), but with advents in finding cancer early this is becoming less and less of an issue. You cannot sum it up as neatly as you propose to do. It's a multi-leveled, complicated topic.

You are sourly uninformed about both mortality rates for both cancers.

Let's just stop and agree that any cancer is terrible.
User avatar #232 to #27 - brenton (10/14/2013) [-]
But there is only a 2% chance of dying from prostate cancer. They're considering extending the testing suggestion from annually to triennially because they're arguing that testing and biopsy cause more harm than good since the risk of death is so low.
User avatar #240 to #232 - lyiat ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
Read the rest of the thread. There is a three percent chance of dying from both cancers.
#134 to #27 - fecal (10/14/2013) [-]

not like it matters. the cure exists, but big pharmaceutical companies keep it hush hush because it's more profitable to treat cancer than to actually cure it.

do you really think man kind has gone this long without finding a cure?
#69 to #49 - Rascal (10/14/2013) [-]
Do you really think no researcher would replicate the cure? Nearly every college has some professors working on research to help figure out how to cure cancer. Nearly every hospital implements trials of different possible medicines to find the next best drug. There would be no way to keep all of these people silent, and you're crazy if you think all pharm companies have that much power or are that corrupt.
User avatar #131 to #69 - DJstar (10/14/2013) [-]
I heard somewhere that there was a reported cure for cancer!!!!
but it would be too "expensive" to widely produce and distribute.

everything in this world revolves around money. nothing more, nothing less. if greed did not exist, the world would be a better place!

go to youtube and search up "10 most suppressed inventions" you will experience incoherent rage.
#88 to #49 - mitchimusk (10/14/2013) [-]
If that's the case then you imply that only one cure has ever been made and has only been sold to one evil pharmaceutical company. If they made a cure and a company bought it and refused to use it, wouldn't another company create a new cure? I firmly believe that no company is that evil. People can be, but not a corporation
