What a bunch of BS!!!!!

Detected early, breast cancer has a survial rate of up to 95%. That's up there with non-melanoma skin cancer.

Most prostate cancers are benign and slow-growing. Some are fast and aggressive. I personally know prostate cancer can kill, because it killed my father at the relatively young age of 69.

These double messages are terribly damaging. Get those exams.
