WE ARE SUPPORTING MOVEMBER!

5 November 2021

Barnsley Football Club is supporting Movember!

Members of our senior playing squad and staff will be sporting moustaches throughout November to raise awareness of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.

Statistics show that more than 47,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year – that’s 129 men a day – while one man dies every 45 minutes from the same illness, the equivalent of 11,500 men each year.

Symptoms aren’t very common, but they could include:

  • A difficulty starting to urinate
  • A weak flow when you urinate
  • A feeling that your bladder hasn’t emptied properly
  • Dribbling urine after you finish
  • Needing to urinate more often than usual, especially at night

If you think you have any symptoms of prostate cancer, go and get yourself checked out immediately by your GP.

Testicular cancer is one of the less common cancers, although it is more likely to affect young men aged between 15-49.

Typical symptoms include a painless swelling or a lump in one of your testicles, or a change in shape or texture of your testicles. Be aware of what feels normal for you and see your GP if you notice any changes.

Check yourself for lumps.

We understand the importance of mental health and it is OK not to be OK.

You are not alone.

Talk to your family. Talk to your friends. Talk to us.

That’s why we support Movember, and all proceeds raised through this campaign will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK, Cancer Research and Mind.
