Alongside varying levels of moustachioed success, Movember’s Director of Programme Implementation, Karen Robb said: “The most common symptoms to watch out for are the need to urinate frequently, especially at night. Difficulty starting urination or holding back urine, or a weak or interrupted flow of urine.
“Some men may also notice difficulty in having an erection, painful ejaculation, or the presence of blood in urine or semen. These symptoms do not always mean you have prostate cancer.
“Many men’s prostates get larger as they get older because of a non-cancerous condition called benign prostate enlargement. But it is important to be aware of what’s normal for your body and see your doctor when something isn’t right. In the UK, one in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.”
But is there anything else to look out for other than ‘moustaches of goodwill’?
