The key is early detection

Self-care is not a luxury,it’s a necessity. In 2024, we invite you to listen to your inner voice and intuition, and to pay attention to what your body and soul need.
Whether it’s physical, mental,emotional, or spiritual health, you deserve to take care of yourself and prevent any potential problems.One of the areas that you might want to focus on is your prostate health.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, 1- 4 black men have a higher risk, but it can be prevented and treated if you are aware of the risk factors and symptoms. That’s why we recommend you to join the Call2Action Prostate Health Road show, a project that offers both online and offline workshops to educate and support men about this topic. You can find out when and where the next workshop is happening by visiting their website or following them on social media.

Another important aspect of your health is cancer screening. Getting screened
regularly for colon, breast, and cervical cancer can save your life, as these are
some of the most common types of cancer, but they can be detected early
and treated effectively if you get tested.

In Haringey, there are Cancer Community Champions who can help you with this.They are trained health professionals whocan provide you with information, advice, and referrals to screening services. You can meet
them at various events and locations in the community, or you can contact them directly.
