She said men with a first-degree relative with prostate cancer and African American men starting around age 40-45 should begin psa testing. Men in the general population, she said, should begin testing around age 50.

Stanford said testicular cancer was rarer than prostate cancer. However, testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting men ages 18 to 35.

"Men in particular, don't like to talk about our health, and we certainly don't like to talk about cancers that affect us," Garone said.

Garone said that according to the "official Movember styleguide", his moustache is called "the undercover brother."

"It was fun trying to grow one because normally I don't keep a thick moustache, but it was fun trying to grow a moustache and compete with my friend and everyone on the team," Mattis said.

Does he plan to shave his today?

"I've kind of grown attached to it," he said. "It keeps my face warm in the winter."

Another good excuse to grow a mo.
