What health problems do men face? Among others are Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer and Mental Health (not forgetting relationships problems).

Prostate cancer occurs in the prostate gland. It is located at the base of the bladder surrounding the first part of the urethra, which carries urine from the bladder. In Malaysia it is the sixth most frequent cancer and it accounts for 5.7 per cent of cancer cases in males. 

Very few prostate cancers occur in men under 50 years of age. The rate increases sharply with age and is highest in the oldest age group. 

In Malaysia, the Chinese record the highest incidence of prostate cancer compared to Malays and Indians. Research is being conducted to identify genes that may predispose people to develop the disease. 

There is also evidence that a diet high in fat increases one’s risk, possible because such a diet may have an impact on the male sex hormone, testosterone, which controls the growth and function of the prostate.
