Celebrating Movember | Paulson Coletti

You may have noticed the large number of men growing mustaches and facial hair during the month of November. This is because, for roughly a decade, men have designated this month as either Movember or No Shave November. While you may think this is just a way for men to explore their looks with extreme amounts of facial hair, it is much more than that.

The month-long event—during which men are not supposed to shave—is designed to raise awareness regarding men’s health issues. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised as a part of donations associated with Movember from countries all over the world. This is to help fund various men’s health projects including those involving prostate and testicular cancer. These are conditions that are often forgot about, but this project helps bring awareness to the seriousness of the matter.

It is especially important to detect men’s health issues early in the process in order to remedy the condition as quickly as possible. If a condition is not detected or is misdiagnosed, it could result in even more serious conditions, and even death.

At Paulson Coletti, our Portland medical malpractice attorneys take these situations seriously. When a medical professional fails to properly diagnose prostate or testicular cancer early, the condition can worsen. If this happens and the patient develops a more serious condition or loses their life, medical negligence may be considered the cause.

We are dedicated to holding negligent medical professionals accountable for their actions and it is our goal to help our clients seek the compensation they deserve. You can trust that we are ready to go to trial to advocate on your behalf. If you’ve been harmed due medical malpractice and need to take legal action, contact our firm for your free case evaluation.
