Men’s Health Awareness Month
4 things that can help raise awareness and support men affected by mental health and suicide, prostate and testicular cancer.
It’s good to talk
- Spend time with people who make you feel good and who you can talk to
- Check in on your friends and make time for them
- Catching up regularly and listening, could make a big difference to how someone is feeling
It’s advisable to regularly check your testicles and to know what’s normal for you. If you feel that something doesn’t feel right you should contact your doctor.
Whether it’s walking, running, cycling or going to the gym, it’s important to stay active. Regular exercise can also help you manage weight and reduce the risk of developing diseases.
Contact your doctor
Between the age of 45-50 it is recommended to talk to your doctor about prostate cancer and whether it’s right for you to have a PSA test. A PSA test is a simple blood test.
