PCUK supporting BLACK

Prostate Cancer UK and Men United’s own websites are very comprehensive and cover all aspects from recognising the signs and symptoms to living with and the treatment of Prostate Cancer.

I will be brief and only comment on what I personally believe is the one single contributory factor behind the understated reality of this condition.

It’s a men (macho) thing.

It doesn’t matter what car you drive, how clever you may be, what job you do, how large your house, how much money you earn. The reality is that we are defined by the functionality of our penis.

We, men, talk about any topic under the sun, but the reluctance to openly discuss the health of our urological system does not seem to matter, until it hurts when we pee.

I also believe that out of a sense of false propriety, some of our own partners avoid talking about it and we carry on playing the macho game, until it’s too late.

I therefore want to raise awareness of this issue so that, if God forbid, any of us should be affected, we can give ourselves the chance of a better quality of life and live longer.

I recently saw this decal on a camper van. One Life. Live It. How True.

Preserving one’s health is the most essential ingredient of living life to the fullest extent of one’s ability.

There’s no sure way of preventing prostate cancer, but preventative care includes watching what you eat and drink. Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your health, but make living life a qualitative life style rather than an obligatory chore.

Prevention is better than cure. Choose a healthy low-fat diet. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat fatty fish. Drink green tea. Drink alcohol in moderation. Exercise.

Many men who do not have prostate cancer, sometimes suffer from an enlarged prostate aka BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy).

Check out Saw Palmetto (It’s an extract of the fruit of serenoa repens and used as a herbal treatment for symptoms of bph).
