OVARIAN AND PROSTATE CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

This month is ovarian and prostate cancer awareness month!

11 women die everyday from Ovarian cancer. Awareness is low both among women and gps, with two thirds of women diagnosed once the cancer has already spread. Here at bispham road pharmacy we aim to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms!
Ovarian cancer symptoms are frequent and persistent usually happening more than 12 times a month these are:
- Pelvic or abdominal pain
- increases abdominal size/persistent bloating
- difficulty eating/feeling full quickly

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, Over 47,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year – that's 129 men every day. Every 45 minutes one man dies from prostate cancer – that's more than 11,000 men every year. 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. Over 330,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer. Here at bispham road pharmacy we’re trying to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms!
If you do notice changes in the way you urinate, this is more likely to be a sign of a very common non-cancerous problem called an enlarged prostate, or another health problem. But it’s still a good idea to get it checked out. Changes include:

-difficulty starting to urinate or emptying your bladder
- a weak flow when you urinate
- a feeling that your bladder hasn’t emptied properly
- dribbling urine after you finish urinating - needing to urinate more often, especially at night - a sudden urge to urinate – you may sometimes leak before you get to the toilet.
