This week is Men’s Health Week, and is a time to bring awareness to health issues that affect men disproportionately and focuses on getting men to become aware of problems they may have or could develop, and gain the courage to do something about it.
Men’s Health Week aims to
-Heighten awareness of preventable health problems for males of all ages.
-Support men to engage in healthier lifestyle choices / activities.
-Encourage the early detection and treatment of health difficulties in males.
As part of this week, we asked a number of players on tour to bring awareness to this week: encouraging men to check your balls!
Testicular cancer is the #1 cancer in younger men, but it’s highly curable when caught early.
Professional Squash Players Mohammed Elshorbagy, Saurav Ghosal, Paul Coll, Lucas Serme, Joelle King, Greg Lobban, Nathan Lake and Todd Harrity all took part in this campaign to urge men to check regularly and prevent testicular cancer.
