Cancer Warning For Cornish Men
7:01am 29th June 2013
A warning is being given that Cornish men are leaving it too late to find out they have got cancer.
Experts at Treliske say many do not go and see a doctor until they think something is seriously wrong.
160 were diagnosed with lung cancer last year.
Dozens will get the testicular or prostate disease.
Wendy Meyers is a Uro-Oncology nurse at the Royal Cornwall Hospital: "GPs are completely used to dealing with this sort of problem and once you get there and you have things sorted out, you'll be very relieved. There's lots of men sit at home worrying about things and don't want to go to the GP but once it's sorted then there's a much higher chance of treating it.
"I think women are far more used to going to the GP with problems because they have children and all that sort of thing whereas men are generally quite reluctant to attend a GP's surgery for anything. I think they tend to be slightly more embarrassed about things than women as well."
