I have enjoyed living and working in Toronto for the past 35 years, calling Blue Jays games across our great country. But I have also enjoyed just as much sharing my story during the month of Movember in hopes of helping other men realize how valuable early detection is in fighting prostate cancer at the most treatable stages.

There is no conclusive evidence that men can prevent prostate cancer but a lot of research is being done to look at diet and physical activity as well as supplementation (for example, with vitamins). The most important thing you can do is yearly screening with a PSA test and DRE after age 50; because although we may not know the most effective ways to prevent prostate cancer now, we know that early detection is key...

Collaboration itself is not a new word, but for the world of cancer research it's an innovative approach. My view is that we need to collaborate to maximize investment and increase research capabilities. Personal interests such as profit, competition, rivalry or recognition need to be put aside.

When you read that processed meat has "Grade 1" status, just like cigarette smoking, arsenic, or asbestos, it just means that the WHO is confident in the relationship between processed meat and cancer - NOT that processed meat is as likely to cause cancer as cigarette smoking is.

One of my biggest takeaways from my 16-year journey with this disease is the power of a positive outlook. Facing a diagnosis with advanced prostate cancer can be extremely upsetting and I've been able to stay optimistic by having a strong support system by my side.

While the overall success of chemotherapy is rising, the challenge of the double-edged sword with respect to the immune system has led scientists to wonder if the side effects can be resolved by good germs. Last week, the answer was revealed -- at least in mice.

On an idle Tuesday in February at 4:30 p.m., I learned that the statistic "one in six men are diagnosed with prostate cancer" became, for me, one in one. I'll never forget that moment. My life's blackboard just went blank. I thought I had done everything right: eating a healthy diet, getting checked regularly, exercising -- but there it was on the biopsy.

Now, I give a lot of money and a lot of time to charitable causes. Yet many times I find myself dressed up and wondering "Just who/what am I raising money for tonight?" But if you give without thought, without conviction, without understanding what you can REALLY do to help, what are you really giving?
I sat down with Justin Hull, participating Mo Bro and founding member of the MOfficials, to discuss his team's involvement. The group is comprised of linesmen and referees from the Western Hockey League who have joined forces in an effort to raise $47,700. Their goal matches the number of Canadian men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011 and 2012.
I received a call in early January 2006 telling me that I had prostate cancer and suggesting a treatment -- surgery. As a 49-year-old healthy and, yes, hockey playing Canadian, cancer was the last thing on my mind Well they say things happen for a reason but I was having trouble figuring out just what that meant.
This Father's Day, your dad may need a little push to get to the doctor's office. At least 38 per cent of men go to the doctor only when they’re extremely sick or when symptoms don’t go away on their...
This week saw a U.S. recommendation that PSA screening for prostate cancer should no longer be routine care for men at average risk. The evidence, in other words, has spoken. So, many are now asking the question: if doctors are no longer supposed to screen in certain populations for two of the most common cancers, is the age of medical screening over?
