Ade Adeniyi, consultant urological surgeon and medical director at Emerson Green NHS Treatment Centre, said: “It is a known fact that men’s life expectancy is seven years less than women’s. Although there are many factors in play I believe men’s approach to health screening, awareness and asking for help is a major contribution to the difference.
“Over the years, through constant advertisement, education and national screening programmes, women have developed excellent awareness of breast and cervical cancer. Early detection means a 95 per cent survival rate.
“Prostate and testicular cancers have equal survival rates when diagnosed early. Women know the impact screening has made to women’s healthcare and I would encourage them to take an active role in passing on that knowledge to loved ones.”
Ade’s top questions to ask yourself to help you monitor a loved one’s health
Ade added: “If you ask yourself these questions, and are concerned your partner is showing any of the symptoms, sit down with them and share your concerns. It may be that they are relieved at the chance to talk. If they do not open up, do not push it but reassure them that you are there for them and that getting medical advice may put all our minds at rest.
“The word cancer generates all sorts of images in our head. What is important and needs to be driven home is that most cancers are curable when caught early. The NHS needs your support to help men be aware, proactive and engaging with services early. I believe we can make a difference and help close that seven-year gap.
“I can give every assurance that, no matter how personal your problem feels, you will be treated with care, empathy and discretion by our colleagues in every branch of the NHS.”
