Mens Health

"British men are paying the price for neglecting their health: more than 100,000 men a year                                      die prematurelymalehealth.On average, men go to their GP half as often as women. It's important to be aware of changes to your health, and to see your GP immediately if you notice something that's not right."

Prostate Cancer
Each year about 36,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer, making it the most common cancer in men. It mainly affects men aged over 50. What to look out for: difficulty in starting to pass urine, a weak or sometimes intermittent flow of urine, dribbling of urine before and after urinating, a frequent or urgent need to pass urine, blood in your urine or semen and pain when passing urine. These symptoms aren't always caused by prostate cancer but if you have them, see your GP.


Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer, though the most common cancer in young men, it is still quite rare. With 2000 new cases being diagnosed each year, this makes it the biggest cause of cancer related death in 15 - 35-year-old males. It accounts for around 70 deaths a year within the UK alone. The most common symptom of testicular cancer is swelling or a pea-sized lump in one of the testes (balls). There is no current screening test therefore it is important that you look out for the following signs and symptoms: a dull ache or sharp pain in your testicles or scrotum which may come and go, a feeling of heaviness in your scrotum, a dull ache in your lower abdomen, a sudden collection of fluid in your scrotum, fatigue and generally feeling unwell.
