THE Reds are backing a new prostate cancer campaign which is aiming to raise awareness among Barnsley's men.

'Watch Yourself' is a council campaign in partnership with Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Barnsley Football Club.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer, aiming to reach as many men in the town as possible.

The Reds will be warming up on home games in Watch Yourself T-shirts and wristbands that display the campaign's slogan.

Reds' goalkeeper Luke Steele said: "This is a campaign that's close to our hearts and we're keen to support it.

"We will do everything we can to reach out to our fan base and beyond, with the message that both cancers are treated, and even beatable, if they're detected early enough."

Dr Nick Balac, Barnsley CCG's chairman, said: "Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 15-44 years with almost half of all cases occurring in men under 35.

"It's important that men across Barnsley recognise the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer and feel confident to consult their GP as soon as they notice something unusual."

Symptoms for testicular cancer include lumps and swelling and sharp pains, whereas symptoms for prostate cancer include abnormalities when urinating, doing it more often and dribbling once finished.
