Introducing Guynae – every guy’s down-there doc!
Women have gynaes. They’ve had them for ages. We think it’s about time that men have one too. Why? Because early cancer testing can save thousands of lives. Maybe even yours! We want it to be as easy for men to talk about and go to a down-there doc, as it is for women. It’s time to put your little guys in a Guynae’s hands and catch cancer before it possibly catches you.
Did you know that Testicular Cancer (TC) is one of the most common cancers in males aged 15-39? Or that TC, if diagnosed early, can be effectively treated by surgery, chemo or radiation? Or that a painless swelling or lump in one or both testicles or ache in the abdomen, back or groin could be a warning sign not to be ignored?
And when it comes to Prostate Cancer (PC), did you know that 1 in 19 South African men have a lifetime risk of being diagnosed with PC?! So if you’re older than 40, consume alcohol, don’t get much exercise, have a history of PC in your family or follow a poor diet (high fat + red meat & low veg intake), you are at high risk of PC. Early detection is key and a blood test could save your life.
