Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK and most other western countries. In the UK it accounts for almost a quarter of male cancers.
Each year, nearly 32,000 men in the UK are diagnosed, and more than 10,000 tragically lose their lives to the disease. Men have a one in 14 lifetime risk of developing prostate cancer.
Like so many cancers, prostate cancer can be successfully treated – but only if it is caught early. There is no perfect screening system for prostate cancer but a simple blood test can help diagnosis at an early stage, and is advisable as part of the yearly health check routine of all men over 50.
It is particularly important that you consult your GP if you display any of the following symptoms-
- A need to urinate frequently, especially at night
- Difficulty starting urination or holding back urine
- Weak or interrupted flow of urine
- Painful or burning urination
- Difficulty in having an erection
- Painful ejaculation
- Blood in urine or semen
- Frequent pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips, or upper thighs
