PROSTATE CANCER Uk

In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. Men aged 50 or over, men with a family history of prostate cancer and black men are more at risk of getting prostate cancer.

Be prostate cancer aware

 

Across the UK:

  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men
  • Over 47,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year – that's 130 men every day
  • Every hour one man dies from prostate cancer – that's more than 11,000 men every year
  • Over 330,000 men are living with and after prostate cancer

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support, their aim is to stop prostate cancer being a killer.

That’s why PCA supports Prostate Cancer UK. And together we want to raise awareness of the disease amongst players, their families and everyone who follows the game.

Stronger Knowing More – join the campaign

1 in 4 black men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, double the risk faced by all men, which is 1 in 8. Yet, only 14% of black men are aware of their higher risk. So Prostate Cancer UK have launched a campaign called Stronger Knowing More, to make sure that all black men know their risk and what to do about it.

The charity has teamed up with legendary British photographer Dennis Morris and received support from a mix of famous faces – including boxer David Haye and poet and writer Benjamin Zephaniah – as well as men directly affected by prostate cancer, who are fronting the campaign.
