Men’s Health Week

This week is Men’s Health week, lead by the Men’s Health Forum to raise awareness of preventable health issues and encourage men and boys to seek professional advice for health-related problems. Their theme this year is based on King Charles who, earlier this year, shared that he had a problem with an enlarged prostate. On the day after his announcement, there were 16,410 visits to the relevant NHS website, compared with 1,414 visits the previous day. Prostate Cancer UK saw an almost doubling in the number of users of its online risk checker. This goes to show the difference that honest sharing can make.
‘P For Prostate’
Men’s Mental Health Forum will be producing a new man manual ‘P For Prostate’ looking at all aspects of the prostate – from where it is and what it does through to various problems it can cause for men.
