CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19)- The University of Cincinnati Medical Center is growing a mustache.
You heard right, a building is growing a mustache. As part of the center's prostate health awareness effort, UCMC will sport a 40-foot mustache on the building's front tower.
For many men, the month of November is an opportunity to grow a bit of stubble above their lip. Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches throughout the month to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
"Movember started for men's health – mustaches for prostate cancer awareness," explains Doctor Sadha Vermam, a radiologist at UC Health. "This is primarily to increase awareness of prostate health."
Doctor Vermam says that prostate cancer is very curable if caught in time. Movember is just a fun way to raise awareness for a disease that affects many.
