MACMILLAN Cancer Support’s Mobile Information and Support Service will be visiting Helmsley next week with cancer information specialists on hand to answer any questions.

The team is encouraging anyone – especially men - with worries relating to cancer to visit

Wayne Priestley, from the mobile information team, said: “In the UK, around 500 men are diagnosed with cancer every day. Yet men often find it difficult to talk about cancer, let alone ask for support. We want more men to talk about cancer and ask for support if they need it.

“With summer fast approaching - the team will also be providing specialist information about sun safety and skin cancer.”

Wayne added: “Skin cancers are most likely to appear on skin that is exposed to the sun. If caught early, they are very treatable and most people with non-melanoma skin cancers are cured with treatment.

“When we visit the area we’ll be on hand to answer any questions about cancer. Whether you want to know what symptoms to look out for, need advice about managing the side effects of your treatment, or want to find local support for carers, come along and see us.”

The team will be at the bike show, Duncombe Park on Friday, 21 and Saturday, June 22, 10am to 6pm
