Prostate Cancer Support
supports men with prostate
We enable them, their families
and friends to meet each other
for mutual support and better
understanding of their conditions.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting the UK male population; one in eight people will get it.
Each year in the UK, over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. About 10,500
die of it.
The number of men diagnosed is increasing, but public awareness of the condition is low. Early diagnosis is important to get the right treatment.
Black men have a three times higher risk of getting prostate cancer than white men of the same age, but the risk for Asian and Chinese men is lower.

Because of the pandemic, your committee has postponed all PSA test events until further notice. However, you can still have a prostate health check at home. The Graham Fulford Charitable Trust (GFCT) has introduced a PSA Home Testing Kit. To find out more about this kit, please visit www.mypsatests.org.uk
