Myrddin Probus Club Awareness Session

Simon Moffett from the Pembrokeshire Friends of Prostate Cymru visited Myrddin Probus Club, who meet at the Pibwrlwyd campus of Coleg Sir Gar in Carmarthen, on Wednesday 11th January 2017 and provided an awareness session to over 40 members.

His presentation raised awareness of benign prostate disease, prostate cancer and general health wellbeing. Prostate Cymru offers awareness sessions to workplaces, and any social organisations including sports clubs free of charge to educate men about their prostate health and risk. Although prostate issues are exclusive to men, women are also encouraged to attend the awareness sessions. For more information about the charity’s awareness programme please visit http://www.prostatecymru.com/well-man-talks/

Prostate cancer affects 1 in 8 men in Wales, 1 in 3 if there is family history, with 2,500 men diagnosed each year and 550 dying from the disease. Amongst other activities that they undertake Prostate Cymru are funding research and innovation across Wales to ensure that men in Wales suffering with prostate diseases will have access to the best available treatments from the NHS in Wales.
