Men’s Health Week is celebrated around the globe every year in the run-up to Father’s Day on 21 June. Last year, the focus was on the prevention and management of Diabetes. This year, we’re turning the tide on Cancer, and Testicular Cancer. According to Cancernet, a Doctor-approved web-based portal, about 1 out of every 250 men will be diagnosed with the disease during their lifetime. Cellnutrition, a 100% natural and innovative range of products, shines the spotlight on the beneficial use of its Cellnutrition Quinton range of products to help prevent and manage the Big C in men’s unmentionables through fitness and resilience at a cellular level.
Men’s Health Awareness Week is not only about educating men on potential health issues, it also encourages them to be proactive in managing risks such as Cancer. Specialist researchers on the topic report that the number of Testicular Cancer cases has increased over the years and they continue to explore the role that proper nutrition and lifestyle factors play on flattening the curve. The truth is, Testicular Cancer cannot be attributed to one thing. Prevention and early detection remain the biggest combatants against it.
The Statistics: What Are the Chances?
Although the disease can be diagnosed at any age, Testicular Cancer is the most diagnosed Cancers in men between ages of 30 to 39. The average age of diagnosis is 33. Testicular Cancer is very rare before puberty with around 6% of cases being diagnosed in boys 15 years old or below. Around 8% of cases are diagnosed in men who are 55 years of age or older. The good news is that if detected at Stage 1, which refers to the stage where the Cancer has not spread beyond the Testicles, the survival rate is up to 99%. Sadly, only about 65% of men are diagnosed at this stage. The not so good news is that Testicular Cancer spreads to other parts of the body very quickly. When this happens, it lowers the efficacy of chemo or radiation therapy and surgery. About 12% of Testicular Cancer is diagnosed at this stage.
A Fighting Chance
Like any other Cancer, Testicular Cancer begins with the cells. It happens when healthy cells in a testicle develop growths referred to as tumours. A dangerous growth or tumour is considered cancerous when it grows out of control and is referred to as malignant as opposed to benign meaning that it has the capacity to spread to other parts of the body. It tends to grow most often in the Sperm ducts. Cellnutrition advocates two things to help prevent and manage Testicular Cancer.
- The company sustainably extracts 78 bioavailable trace elements and minerals from pristine plankton blooms in the depths of the Atlantic Oceans. It ensures that these elements are provided in the correct ratios in a bioavailable drinkable solution perfectly packaged in recyclable glass ampoules. This means that the body’s cells can easily absorb what they need. It helps with proper hydration, homeostasis and the building blocks to build more resilient cells. This product range is Cellnutrition Quinton.
- Correct Ratios of Plant-Based Omegas. Omega3, 6 and 9 are fatty acids that play a pivotal role in heart health, cholesterol levels and oxidative stressors. Antioxidants are substances that are shown to protect the body’s cells against free radicals, which may play a role in the development of Cancer and other diseases. Omegabiocell369 is 100% plant preparations of ultra-pure Omega-3,6 and 9. It contains the highest concentration of Omega3,6,9 ethyl esters, specifically balanced to deliver the optimal ratio of Omega3:Omega6.
Omega3’s in particular are considered as pharmaconutrients - which help build immunity by acting as receptors to fight off agonists and increase the benefits of chemotherapy. They are largely considered to improve the overall survival of Cancer patients.
According to Cancernet, the symptoms of Testicular Cancer may include a painless lump or swelling on either of the testicles. If found early, a testicular tumour may be about the size of a pea or a marble, but it can grow much larger. Men can expect pain, discomfort, or numbness in a testicle or the scrotum too, even without a swelling.
