Tackling Testicular Cancer
Young men should regularly “check their tackle” Australian Medical Association (WA) President Dr Michael Gannon recently told students at Trinity College.
Speaking to a group of more than 300 Year 11 and Year 12 students, Dr Gannon said men all too often forgot their own health.
Appearing with special guests from the Socceroos, including superstar Tim Cahill, Dr Gannon said it was important that all men regularly considered their health.
“The tragic reality is that of those boys here today, maybe three of you will be diagnosed with testicular cancer.”
“Women are very good at looking after their health, they are very good for going to see their GP, turning up for cervical cancer screening, to have conversations about family planning, talking about diet and exercise. They are much better about health promotion than men,” Dr Gannon said.
