Prostate Cancer UK
Prostate Cancer UK is the UK leading men’s health charity
- Prostate cancer kills one man every hour. It is the most common cancer in men.
- 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer – rising to 1 in 4 amongst black men.
- More than 10,000 men die every year from prostate cancer.
- Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year.
- 300,000 men are already living with the disease.
Men deserve better. It’s that simple. Better answers, better services and better treatments – wherever they live in the UK.
That’s why we’ve invested millions of pounds into research, services and awareness over the last 10 years. It’s the reason we provide services to men and their families like our Specialist Nurses, one-to-one support and information leaflets. It’s why we’re leading the way in providing prostate education to medical professionals. It’s why we don’t take no for an answer when it comes to fighting our campaigns. We are Prostate Cancer UK.
How we make a difference
Prostate Cancer UK fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. We have three priorities:
Supporting men and providing information
Our Specialist Nurses have time to talk to men and their families to answer questions about prostate cancer and prostate problems to ensure that they get the right information they need. Our award winning publications are available for anyone and cover all aspects of the disease and treatment options. Our online community and one-to-one support service connects men and their families with others who know what they're going through.
Finding answers through research
We fund research into tests, treatments and the causes of prostate cancer. Over the years, research in this area has been badly underfunded. We are changing this.
Leading change to raise awareness and improve care
With help from our volunteers, we work with the general public, the government and the NHS to raise awareness and campaign for change to get a better deal for men with prostate cancer.
Get Involved. Join Men United
Men United is our movement for everyone who believes men are worth fighting for.
By joining Men United you'll get to see your mates more, do something great together and help beat prostate cancer.
Whether it's big or small, signing a petition or running a marathon, doing it together is what really matters. We know what starts with a quick 'hello' a chat in the pub or a barbecue with mates can end with a nationwide movement of men - ready to fight for their friends, themselves and men everywhere.
