MEN’S HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH: DAY 3 – CHECK YOUR ‘P’ TO PREVENT ‘C’

We get so caught up with “looking good,”sometimes we forget the “living well” part of our lives. Yes, a suit looks good on us, but if we don’t take care of ourselves the next could be the one we are wearing in a casket. Perhaps that is a bit extreme, but our health is something that we should not neglect.  

 
This month is Men’s Health Awareness Month. Here at Gents, we want to help you be a better and healthier you. For 10 days, we will provide some quick life and fitness tips to improve or keep you on track of just that.

Prostate-cancer-Male-anatomAs you approach your 30’s it is important that you are very aware of any problems regarding your prostate. Research has shown that prostate cancer sufferers who detected the disease in their 30s had much better prognoses than men who spotted it later in life. 

Here are some warning signs of early prostate cancer that you should be aware of:

  • Frequent urination 
  • Discomfort in urination or ejaculation
  • Difficulty getting or maintaining an erection
  • Having a tough time either starting the urine flow or holding it back

If you notice any of these symptoms, be sure to see your doctor at once.
