With Movember in full swing, health experts at Cleveland Clinic Florida are reminding the men of the Cayman Community that they should not wait until health concerns become serious to mention them.
The ‘Just #MENtionit’ campaign was started by Cleveland Clinic in order to help encourage men to start speaking up and discussing their health with each other, especially those who might have experienced a particular health issue or known someone who has.
A recent study completed in the US by Cleveland Clinic showed that 53 percent of men said their health just isn’t something they talk about.
The survey, which was conducted in order to get insights into the behaviours and attitudes of men related to their health, found that men across all age ranges do not know the right age to screen for various health concerns.
“Learning and discussing men’s health is especially important in Cayman and our hope is that it will lead to better preventive care and improved urological health,” said Lawrence Hakim, MD, Center Director of Surgical Services and Chairman of the Department of Urology at Cleveland Clinic Florida.
