Knowledge of Men’s Health Dangerously Low
29th October 2018
Amongst British adults, urology diseases such as testicular cancer and prostate cancer are not well understood and men are not looking out for the signs and symptoms of these deadly diseases.
This was the revealing and shocking research undertaken as part of Urology Awareness Month that was presented at our Forum last month by The Urology Foundation’s CEO, Louise de Winter.
- 70% of British adults do not know the correct age from which men should be tested for prostate cancer
- 2 in 3 British adults do not know what a prostate does
- More than half of British adults do not know the age range when men are most likely to get testicular cancer
- Half of British men have not checked their testicles for lumps in the last year (doctors recommend once a month)
