Movember Day: Raising awareness of male cancers

Movember: Raising awareness for men's health

Written by Top Clean Packaging - Published on
November is the month when the whole world mobilises for men's health.

Movember, a contraction of "moustache" and "November," is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness and funds for specifically male health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.

On Monday 6 November 2023, the Top Clean Packaging Group in collaboration with the Ligue contre le Cancer 63 organised a Movember awareness day.

It was an opportunity to promote better care for men's health among our employees and to reinforce our commitment to the health of our teams.

Key Figures on Male Cancers

Raising awareness is at the heart of Movember's mission, because prevention and early detection are essential in the fight against male cancers. Here are some key figures to remember:

  • In France, 1 in 7 men is likely to develop prostate cancer during his lifetime. It is the most common cancer in men. Early detection can save lives.
  • Although less common, testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged between 15 and 35. However, it is highly curable if detected at an early stage.
  • Lung cancer is the biggest killer of men in France. Smoking is the main risk factor, but other factors, such as exposure to carcinogens, also play a role.
  • Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in men in France. Screening colonoscopies can help identify precancerous lesions and prevent cancer.
  • Men are three to four times more likely to develop bladder cancer than women. It is important to watch for symptoms such as pain or blood in the urine.
Movember Awareness Day

The Movember awareness day at Top Clean Packaging was an opportunity to highlight these figures and encourage our employees to take their health into their own hands. The event included several workshops led by the Ligue contre le Cancer to share knowledge.

Movember is not just about moustaches. It's a movement to change the face of men's health. At Top Clean Packaging, we believe in the collective responsibility of looking after our employees and are proud to have worked with the Ligue contre le Cancer to raise awareness of these crucial issues.
