As you all probably know, Movember is an annual, month-long event (November) involving the growing of mustaches to raise awareness on men-related health issues, such as prostate cancer. This year, Movember Lebanon is trying to introduce this campaign to Lebanon and is basically asking people to grow mustaches to raise awareness for prostate cancer.

If anyone wishes to take part in this campaign, I will gladly upload their pictures on a separate post at the end of the month and share it with the people behind Movember LB.

Email your pictures to najib@blogbaladi.com and let’s help spread some awareness.

Q. Why is it important to detect prostate cancer early?
The best chance for cure is when the disease is found early, before it has spread beyond the prostate. The cure rate is well above 90 percent if it’s caught early.
