Male cancers discussed at Café MED launch event

The impact of common male cancers will be discussed next week (Feb 24) at the first in a new season of Café MED public talks.

NHS Grampian Consultants Ms Justine Royle and Professor Sam McClinton, who both also hold honorary appointments at the University of Aberdeen, together with University of London Professor Tom Cox, will discuss the types of male cancer, their treatment and the latest research work about prevention and cancer management at the talk, organised by the University's Public Engagement with Research team.

Of male cancers, prostate cancer is the most common in the UK. Over a quarter of a million men in the UK are currently living with and after prostate cancer, according to Prostate Cancer UK.

Professor McClinton said: “Many men living with, or after prostate cancer, are of working age. This talk will not only cover the risk factors and treatment but also the impact of cancer on the lives of those diagnosed their families and returning to work.”

Ms Justine Royle will discuss the latest research and treatments for prostate cancer and Professor Tom Cox, an occupational psychologist, will speak about the impact of cancer on working men and their families.

All Cafe MED events are free to attend, open to all and take the format of a relaxed discussion in the cafe at the Suttie Centre on Aberdeen’s Foresterhill health campus. Talks begin at 6pm, no booking is required and the public should arrive early to secure a good seat.

Other sessions in the series will cover topics such as Parkinson’s disease, blood donation and exercise and health.

Cafe MED brings together leading figures in medicine and biosciences and the public and is unique opportunity to hear the latest thoughts, findings and ask questions about their work.

The University's café discussion series is supported by a science engagement grant from the Scottish Government. Full details of all current programmes can be found at www.engagingaberdeen.co.uk and at www.facebook.com/cafemedaberdeen
