Veterans' Day Reminder from Men's Health Network: Pay Attention to Bladder Cancer Symptoms and Risk Factors
Date:11/8/2009

Men’s Health Network (MHN) urges military veterans to learn about their health risks, especially those linked to exposure to chemicals, atomic agents and soot or smoke from military service. Bladder cancer is one of those cancers that is two times more prevalent in veterans, especially those who once smoked or currently smoke cigarettes.

MHN urges all Americans to recognize our veterans and help ensure that they are getting access to health information and care that they need to live long and healthy lives.

The Veterans Health Council (VHC) was established last May to improve veterans’ health through information and advocacy. More than 50 organizations including Men’s Health Network are participating. VHC reports the information challenge is reaching the veterans when “at least 80 percent of vets do not use the VA (medical centers) as their healthcare provider and only some 25 percent are members of veterans service organizations.”

“We are proud to be an active partner in the Veterans Health Council as we continue to address the growing health needs of those who have so dutifully and sacrificially served our country,” shared Scott Williams, VP for Men’s Health Network. Twitter us at https://twitter.com/MensHlthNetwork.
