International Men’s day and Movember 2022

Aberdeen & London

This year’s motto of the UK Movember movement is 
  • Making a positive difference to the wellbeing and lives of men and boys 
  • Promoting a positive conversation about men, manhood and masculinity 
  • Raising awareness and/or funds for charities supporting men and boys’ wellbeing 
Men’s average life expectancy is 4.5 years shorter than women’s, for reasons that are largely preventable. Knowledge and awareness of hazards to men’s health and easy access to appropriate medical services are needed to prevent the preventable!

Special Mens’ parts to take special care of


  • Prostate, a matter of age
    Are you male, >50 years old or >45 years and black or with a family history of prostate, breast or ovarian cancer? You might want to talk to your doctor about your risk of prostate cancer.
    Peeing becomes troublesome? There is a lot that can be done about that. Consult your doctor and get help!
  • Testicles, shape matters!
    Testicular cancer most often affects young men! Self-examine regularly once a month to know what is normal and seek medical advice if you feel something abnormal about your testicles. The likelihood of cancer is low, but if it is cancer, the earlier treated the better. Better safe than sorry!
  • Penis- don’t be embarrassed!
    Problems with erection? Penis bend? Foreskin tight? Warts, thrush or other skin problems? Don’t be shy, consult your doctor and get it treated!
  • Male fertility- a man is more than just his semen!
    Every 7th couple struggles to conceive. If you are amongst them, make sure you get tested- both of you! In 50% contributing male factors are found, in one third of the cases the problem is down to the men only!
    The reasons for male infertility can be a problem within the testicles or in other parts of the body. And often, the reason can and should be treated to help the man to better fertility AND better health!
  • Testosterone- the fuel for the male
    A testosterone deficiency can develop at any age and causes various symptoms, such as chronic tiredness, impaired sexual functions, lack of energy, muscle and bone pain and more. A blood test can easily find the diagnosis and treatment can change your life.
