Prostate Cancer


Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. It is usually diagnosed in men over 65, but prostate cancer can happen in younger men, though it is uncommon in men under 50.

A prostate exam is a common examination that is used to check on the current condition of the prostate. As men age, the need to monitor prostate health becomes more of a necessity.


Unfortunately, many men neglect the task of having periodic examinations of the prostate. Often, this is due to a misunderstanding about the mechanics of the exam, as well as a lack of information about prostate cancer and what the disease can do if left unchecked.

How technology can impact on sleep


Sleep satisfaction can be affected by noise, light in the room and distractions that often comes from phones, TV and computers.

Although you may not notice it, the blue light coming from your gadgets suppresses melatonin in your body, a hormone that supports your sleep/wake cycle known as circadian rhythm. When your cycle is off, you feel less rested.

To lessen the blue light’s awakening effects on your sleep, turn off all electronics at least 30 minutes before bedtime and do something relaxing like reading instead.
