We’re on a mission to change the face of men’s health. And we want to show you what that looks like.

We’re marking World Cancer Day on February 4 by highlighting the progress we’ve made so far. Progress that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our community.

We’ve made life-changing advances in research and treatment for prostate cancer and testicular cancer – all thanks to you.

A REVOLUTIONARY LEAP IN PROSTATE CANCER CARE

The FDA just approved an innovative new imaging agent used to carry out PSMA-PET scans for men with prostate cancer.

ROARING PROGRESS

Co-funded by Movember, the international TIGER Trial is a large and complex study aimed at answering critical questions about how to treat men who have already had chemotherapy, but whose testicular cancer has returned. Read on...

TRUE NORTH PROSTATE CANCER

Movember's True North gives men living with or beyond prostate cancer the info they need to make informed decisions about the treatment, support and recovery that's right for them. Know someone impacted by prostate cancer? Let them know about truenorth.movember.com.

TRUE NORTH TESTICULAR CANCER

True North Testicular Cancer is an online support tool developed by Movember for men diagnosed with testicular cancer. The site is designed to connect men with a supportive community of others experiencing a similar journey, and to equip them with the information they need to rebuild confidence during and after treatment.

THIS IS ALL YOU, MO COMMUNITY

Without you, these game-changing breakthroughs, trials and innovations wouldn't exist. It's simple: you're changing and saving lives and accelerating progress in prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
