Well my lovely NOPErs welcome to another wonderful work week. Down here in the wonderful land of Aus we have an extra day for our weekend cos its the Queen's birthday, well I'm not sure if its really her birthday but every 2nd weekend in June we pretend it is and have a long weekend... cos the old duck has to be good for something. Much more importantly, this week is International Men's Health Week... why do they get a week you may ask, cos they are men and they are too busy being all butch and macho to pay attention to their bodies warning signs. Prostrate cancer is not the worse cancer to get but because so many blokes are to 'manly' to get a test they don't pick it up until its too late. So go get checked... best case cenario there's nothing wrong and you find something new you enjoy.... worse case senario you have a fighting chance. You all give a shit about yourselves or you wouldn't be here... so go get a physical, get a blood work up done, check yourself for lumps, and for god sake if you feel down and stressed and anxious or depressed talk to someone... a real man will say "hey somethings not right" or "I'm feeling pretty shit" cos that takes more balls than pretending there's nothing wrong and not getting help.

 

Now.. surprisingly not all blokes know how to check their balls for the signs of testicular cancer... shocked me to learn this... so i got an expert in to explain for you....

 

So to sitting back and watching me mates suffer cos they are too pig headed to look out for themselves AND for lungs full of smoke and tar I say

 

NOPE

Gday

Its NOPE for me.

Prostate cancer is the secound largest cancer killer of men just behind lung cancer. Unlike lung cancer it has a simple blood test that can indicate it's possible presence. A simple pin prick every 2 years called a PSA test. Biggest chance is its a more benign version and you die with the cancer rather than of it.

If you get a more virilent version it will kill you if not treated.  I'm a prostate cancer survivor. 2 years post OP. Having a level 5 cancer staged at P3a means I still have a 40 per cent chance of it's return. 

If your a bloke over 40 get the simple test. Yes and stay smoke free more smokers get the virulent cancers

With apologies for the partial quote. Just to echo Cbdave, get tested, it's very simple.

 

Nope!

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
