Ready, set, mo! Get ready for Movember

Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer has often been a sensitive issue for many men, however, statistics provided by the Fiji Cancer Society through the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, show that there is an urgent need to address the issue.

"Each November, Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre provides a fun platform for men to have conversations about their health". All funds raised are invested in mens health prevention, detection and treatment programmes in Bermuda. If you are of African or Caribbean descent or have a father or brother with prostate cancer, you should be having this conversation at 45. Come out and have some fun getting your mo shaven off; but first, get judged to win various prizes.

The statement continued: “Know your numbers, know your risk, talk to your doctor.

Movember events are open to the public.

Makoi Health Centre's Dr Keshwan Nadan said prostate cancer was the number one killer in men and it was imperative to get tested.

The spokeswoman said men should be motivated to get active: “Try the Catlin Man on the Run 5K being held on November 12, at 9am at Warwick Academy.

This year it is being held on November 16, from 10am to 4pm at the Seventh Day Adventist Church Hall on King Street. Women are welcome but only on the sidelines.

Men across the globe are encouraged to grow their moustaches to raise awareness as men are facing health crises that aren't being talked about.

“Prefer to Move on your own?

"All funds raised support the Centre's charitable outreach initiatives around men's health which includes the Centre's Radiation Therapy Initiative".
