We told you Monday about a group of guys who stopped shaving in order to raise awareness for men's health issues.
Health professionals say 'No Shave November' is an effective way to raise awareness, yet, men's health should always be talked about everyday.
They say it often falls under the radar and there are a lot of diseases that affect men.
Prostate cancer and testicular cancer... just to name a few.
Urology professionals say men should be doing self exams, and once they reach 50, they should think about getting annual prostate screenings.
They say awareness should start at a young age. It's extremely important for kids and teens to become familiar with their bodies.
"I find that babies are obviously seen by their parents often but then there's this time frame between five and 16 that nobody's looking. And then the teenage male should start beginning self exams," said Urology Clinic of Winchester physician assistant, Michelle D'Alessio.
D'Alessio says men should be doing self exams at least once a month. That way, they'll notice even small changes.
She says 80 percent of 80-year-old men will develop prostate cancer. However, testicular cancer is more common in young men.
