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.
