Our Cancer Prevention Team

Over 40% of cancers could be prevented, by leading a healthy lifestyle, not smoking, choosing a balanced diet, taking regular exercise and reducing alcohol intake.

Sue and Aileen, our specialist Cancer Prevention Team, visit schools, colleges, businesses, social clubs and community groups within the Three Counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, to discuss preventative measures and raise awareness of how early detection can improve outcomes. We provide these vital services completely free of charge.

If you would like to arrange a visit from our friendly Cancer Prevention Team, please email sue.white@cobalthealth.co.uk

Movember is more than just about moustaches….

It’s about raising awareness of prostate and testicular cancer too. Cobalt’s cancer prevention team are using November to ask men to check themselves. We generally know when there are unusual changes to our bodies, changes that could become life-threatening if left.

The good news is that the earlier a cancer is diagnosed, the greater the:

  • treatment choices
  • chance of successful treatment

Visit your GP if you experience any of these testicular or prostate symptoms.  Most changes won’t be cancer but they do need to be checked.

If you are interested in having a men’s health/cancer awareness workshop in your workplace contact me sue.white@cobalthealth.co.uk. The talks take approximately 45 mins they are free, fun and informative and can be booked to fit in with work commitments.

Did you know we can provide specialist prostate imaging using the latest technology at Cobalt?
