Speaking at the event, Prof. Nwobodo alleged that men mostly don’t like to talk about their health problem.

“There have been several cases of breast cancer in men though, it was not as pronounced as that of women.

“Why such was not often reported was due to reluctance in men to present themselves for screening, as they were fond of hiding their health challenges.

“Men always hide their health challenges and that is why prostate cancer is still going to be an epidemic and big time problem with us, because it is always reported late,” he explained.
