Health Matters: Growing a moustache for Movember?

Page 2



Movember is back again this year and men across the world will be growing moustaches to help raise awareness of men's health issues.

Men can be reluctant to take action with their health, and the Movember campaign aims to change this, and highlight the risks to men's health.

There's lots you can do to reduce the risk of common health problems. Whether you're wanting to quit smoking, lose weight, get more active, de-stress, talk to someone about your sexual healh or simply feel better in yourself  Wirral Community NHS Trust offers Health Trainer services that can help you live well. 

By improving your general health you can reduce the risk of more serious illness. However, if you are concerned about a specific health matter talk to your GP straight away. For many diseases early detection is vital. You know your body better than anyone, so if you feel something is not right, don't wait. Other symptoms you should never ignore include:

  • a lump on your testicle
  • unusual changes to moles
  • depression 
  • trouble urinating
  • impotence
