General Information on Prostate Cancer and its Diagnosis
Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in UK men.
Each year about 47,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 11,000 will die from the disease.
That's one death from prostate cancer every 48 minutes.
Prostate cancer is rare in men under 50. The most common age of diagnosis is between 65 and 69.
However, you are at higher risk of prostate cancer if you:
Our Prostate Cancer Support Group sets out to create awareness of this cancer by organising Prostate Awareness Events to give men the opportunity of having a prostate health assessment.
This is done through a simple blood test, known as a PSA test.
Most early prostate cancers do not have any symptoms, and so we encourage men to be aware of the risks of prostate cancer and to know their PSA.
Men over 50 are entitled to a free annual PSA Test. In this way men can keep a regular check on the health of their prostate.
