New Campaign to Tackle Late Diagnosis of Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer care in the UK is currently suffering from a lack of both research funding for new treatments and awareness of the condition. The symptoms of bladder cancer are often being missed or ignored because people don’t realise that they could be signs of a serious condition. Even when people do seek help, they are often being left waiting to start treatment for bladder cancer. A new campaign to raise awareness of the condition has now been launched by Fight Bladder Cancer (UK) to address these issues, with the Kelpies statue in Falkirk being specially lit up in orange to highlight the problem in Scotland.

However, a recent survey has revealed that this may be nothing more than a myth. Cycling doesn’t appear to have any overall negative effects on men’s health. Men who spend a lot of time on a bike are no more likely to need erectile dysfunction or prostate enlargement treatment. Read More

Is The Male Menopause Real?

Men do not go through the same inevitable changes in midlife as women do, but declining hormone levels can still have a big impact in later life for many men. Androgen deficiency in men can cause symptoms that have just as big an impact on everyday life as the female menopause.
