The Healthy Male, Winter issue

Funding Announcement 2016

After 16 years (and 59 editions of The Healthy Male) as the only national body providing evidenced-based information, best practice support and education, and policy advice in the area of male reproductive health and associated conditions, the Federal Government has withdrawn ongoing funding for the program.

We are now lobbying the government to reverse this decision for the sake of the health of Australian men.

Focus on: Checking for lumps in the testes: Could it be testicular cancer

Although relatively rare overall (about 700 cases per year in Australia), testicular cancer is the second most common cancer in young men (aged 18-40 years). Testicular cancer has a very good cure rate (over 95%) so it is a good idea for young men to check their testes regularly for any lumps or swellings to help find any problems early.

Health Spot: Looking after your sperm

Men don’t often think about fertility or the health of their sperm until it comes time to start a family. For the best chance of a healthy pregnancy it’s important to make large numbers of sperm that are good swimmers and able to fertilise an egg.

How readable is online health information?

A recent Australian study has assessed the readability (defined as ‘how well a passage of text can be read and understood’) of 251 webpages with information on 12 common health conditions.

Latest News: Supporting young men’s health in Australia

The Andrology Australia Young Men’s Health Stakeholder Forum 2016 held in Canberra on 3rd to 4th March provided an opportunity to explore contemporary issues affecting the health and wellbeing of young men in Australia. The Forum provided a platform to discuss the possibility of a “young man’s health check” in the primary health care setting to detect unrecognised illness. The importance of educating young men to prepare for their future health was a key focal point of discussion.
