B is for Balls

This is serious stuff, and not wholly unpleasant…

A few weeks ago I went to Leeds to see this chap who quite tenderly caressed my testicles and probed my bottom.

Okay, now that I have your attention I will clarify that it was part of a health assessment and the chap was most qualified to do so given the certificate on the wall.  He also had a white coat and a stethoscope, so that pretty much qualifies him to do what the dickens he fancies to my tender parts.

I would say that the certificate  didn’t specifically mention those activities, that would just be weird, but it all  looked particularly official so I just assumed it covered it.

My point is, and it is a serious one, that many men neglect these things and end up dead.

There are some pretty harrowing figures out there on the matter of men’s health.  Did you know that 1 in 8 men in the UK will get prostate cancer in their lives?  It is the most common cancer in men in the UK, and yet so many of us do nothing about it in terms of prevention.

What’s the point you ask?  My point is don’t neglect your health gents. You might actually find that you enjoy it, you never know.

  1. And don’t forget to get your PSA test! Be aware that an enlarged prostate does not mean cancer and if you have prostate cancer, you won’t necessarily have an enlarged prostate. If it weren’t for a regular checkup and bit of bloodwork, my husband Bill might well have been one of those statistics. He had prostate surgery a year ago and is now cancer-free! Actually, we both got great news from our oncologists recently, so you’re stuck with me for a while, you poor thing!

  2. I agree… my father-in-law ended up with this and fortunately it was caught early. I mean how bad can it really be to get checked out. If it keeps you alive a few more years, it’s worth it. 😉
