Ricardo Cavalcanti, Jurandi Costa, José Carlos de Almeida, Ubirajara Ferreira, Nardi Aguinaldo IV Forum for Public Policy and Men's Health

Urologists advocated in the House the need for increased attention to human health in the country Participants of the 5th Forum for Public Policy and Human Health, sponsored by the Commission on Social Security and Family, recognized that historically the least the man goes doctor that the woman, either by fear or prejudice.

As president of the Brazilian Society of Urology (SBU), José Carlos de Almeida, we have to remove the bias by means of campaigns and make room for the man in the healthcare system, so it feels safe to be attended . Almeida said the government should open this space, but acknowledges that the Ministry of Health has handled the issue with good will.

The federal government will launch later this month, the National Policy for Integral Attention to Men's Health. "The message we want to take this policy is that Brazilian men need to care more. It is men who have less contact with the policies of Health Contact This only increases after 60 years of age. We die sooner than women but before we give too much work for them, "said Director of Strategic Programmatic Actions of the Ministry of Health, José Luiz Telles, who represented Minister Jose Gomes forum.

Disease prevention

In the event, José Carlos de Almeida recalled that serious health problems can be avoided with simple actions. This is the case of penile cancer, its prevention is to wash the penis with soap and water. "The cleaning can exterminate the penile cancer in Brazil. Currently, more than a thousand men have the penis amputated in the country as a result of a preventable disease that is cured with hygiene and education," said the chairman of the SBU.

In relation to prostate cancer, urologists say it is a disease with two realities: the diagnosis of early and late. The chances of cure are 90% if the tumor is detected early. Therefore, man must seek the urologist regularly from the age of 45 or 40, if any case of prostate cancer in the family.

According to data from the National Cancer Institute (Inca), are 46 000 new cases per year from the disease, which kills 8,000 people annually.

Campaigns

The chairman of the Security, Mrs Elcione Barbalho (PMDB-PA), suggested that the Ministry of Health to make a major campaign to raise awareness of the problems affecting the male population. "We see a lot of campaign directed to women, for no man. We have to change that mentality, that shame does not make sense. Prevention is everything, and society as a whole has responsibility in this confrontation," he complained.

Sidney Glina The urologist said that at least the SBU has done his part and performs, for example, campaigns in football stadiums. In 2006, the company distributed pamphlets for information on prostate cancer during the games of the Brazilian Soccer Championship. The poster boy of the campaign was former player Socrates.

The doctor also recalled that in 2007, the SBU launched a joint effort in Maranhão to detect cases of penile cancer. He stressed the need to train health officers to identify the disease and refer patients to the urologist.

On the other hand, the doctor suggested the inclusion of more urologists under the National Health System (SUS). Urology, he explained, is a gateway into the SUS and the patient may spend attending physicians from other areas, such as cardiologists.

Amendment 29

Mr Darcísio Perondi (PMDB-RS), which requested the forum, urged urologists who engages in the struggle for regulation of Amendment 29. "It will strengthen the anemic budget [of Health], 2010, because this year the budget is with a red light," he said.
