Men's health

This year in Ireland, around 9,700 men will be diagnosed with cancer, and 4,200 men will lose their lives to the disease. We tell you how you can cut your risk of cancer in half, and we give you the tools you need to spot cancer early. In this way, we hope you will go on to enjoy a long, happy and healthy life.

Have questions about reducing your risk? Contact our National Cancer Helpline on 1800 200 700.

We provide a series of booklets specific to men's health and cancers that affect men.

If you’re interested in getting out there and educating others about the link between cancer and lifestyle and the importance of early detection, we’d like to hear from you.

Visit the website of Men's Health Forum Ireland to find out about Men’s Health Week events in your area and for lots of information about men's health in general.

November marks the time for Movember, the annual moustache-growing charity event that raises funds and awareness for our Action Prostate Cancer programme.
