The mobile team of cancer specialists are in Chapel Street, Southport today (Thursday 7th March 2013) from 9am-3pm.
The team’s visit coincides with Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in March.
The mobile centre has clear information on this type of cancer, which is the most common cancer among men in the UK.
Around 37,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year and 250,000 men are currently living with the disease.
The team, on board a bright green bus, welcome anyone with a question or concern about cancer, no matter how small, to step on board for a confidential chat, or just to pick up some information leaflets. No appointment is necessary and the service is completely free of charge.
A spokesperson for Macmillan Information Support Specialist, said: “March highlights one of the most common male cancers in the UK. There’s no harm in finding out more – the centre has a wide range of information on prostate cancer and all other cancers. We have had a great response so far this morning here in Chapel Street with over 20 people visiting the unit befor 10:30am.
“If you have any concern about cancer, do come and see us. You don’t need an appointment and you can talk to one of the Macmillan Information Specialists face-to-face.
It’s free and completely confidential.”
