Blokes Night In – Has Your Flow Changed?
Did you know? Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men.
Six things to know about the prostate are:
1. it’s a small but important gland (organ) in the male reproductive system
2. it gets bigger as you get older
3. it can interfere with urination
4. it can get inflamed
5. it can get cancer
6. prostate diseases, including cancer, can usually be treated.
If you have concerns, see your doctor.
The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia advises men aged over 50 — or over 40 if you have a family history of prostate cancer — to talk to their doctor about using the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test as part of their regular check-up.
Murray Irrigation’s 2020/2021 sponsorship program provided funding towards the event and Deni LHAC’s Men’s Health Campaign across the region in the lead up to Men’s Health week in June 2021.
Blokes’ Night In is a free event for men that includes dinner with guest speakers, an expert panel, resources and a mini-health check by local doctors.
