During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

To support this campaign, the Men’s Health event will take place on Wednesday 7pm November from 6-7.30pm in the Conference Centre at King’s Mill Hospital.

The event will be hosted by Consultant Urologist Mr Krishnan and you will hear more about prostate cancer, PSA tests, erectile dysfunction and incontinence. Urology Specialist Nurse, David Johnson will also talk about testicular cancer.

Mr Krishnan, Consultant Urologist, who treats patients with prostate cancer said:

“Movember is a fantastic campaign to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer and I am delighted to be supporting it.

“Men are often too embarrassed to go to their GP when they spot something wrong or something different. It is very important for men to have an idea of what prostate cancer actually is and how to spot and stop it – so please come along to this event which I promise will be light hearted, as well as informative, and you will learn something new.”
