Shady Grove Fertility Center for Male Fertility (SGF) supports Men’s Health Awareness Month in November with free resources for patients
ROCKVILLE, MD., November 17, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Men’s Health Awareness Month is held each November to raise awareness and provide education on men’s specific cancers as well as men’s mental health. Separated from the recognized Men’s Health Month in June, November Men’s Health Awareness Month educates and supports men struggling with prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health issues and suicide.
Shady Grove Fertility Male Fertility Center (SGF), comprised of reproductive urologists Paul Shin, MD, Cori Tanrikut, MD and Russel hayden, MD, encourages preservation of male fertility prior to cancer treatment to secure future family building options. Similar to freezing eggs and embryos, men can freeze their sperm to preserve fertility when faced with testicular tumors or other cancers. Cryopreservation of sperm is a viable option for men to preserve their fertility before undergoing cancer treatments.
“Men’s Health Awareness Month prioritizes conversations like cancer, mental health and fertility preservation because the truth is that between 40% and 50% of the male population will experience problems with sexual health and fertility, ”says Dr. Hayden.
