September is deemed the National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, so expect many pieces of advice about the disease to flood your years. Nevertheless, men are usually unaware that some simple prostate cancer prevention measures may save their lives on the long run.

Experts do not know a certain cause of why some men develop prostate cancer. Doctors suspect that it is either related to family history or an unhealthy lifestyle. But in many cases both factors can lead to the disease.
