Prostate Cancer Awareness

Prostate cancer is more common than you think. It is the most common cancer in men with 1 in 8 getting prostate cancer in their lifetime.

That could be you, your dad, uncle, brother, partner or best friend.

This is why Prostate Cancer UK and the NHS have joined forces to launch a campaign to find the 14,000 men who have not started treatment for prostate cancer since the beginning of the pandemic.

Early diagnosis saves lives

New figures show that prostate cancer accounts for a third of those not treated for cancer compared to before the pandemic. Prostate cancer is very treatable if caught early. It’s important for men to know their risk because early prostate cancer often has no symptoms.

Check your risk and share the risk checker with loved ones
