Every man has a prostate gland, it’s important for their sex life – Yet according to a survey of men aged 45 and over by Prostate Cancer UK, 70% of them knew nothing about their prostate or the symptoms of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with more than 30,000 men diagnosed annually (second most common cause of cancer deaths in men after lung cancer).
Most men with early prostate cancer have no symptoms at all. Some of the symptoms of prostate cancer can also be caused by other prostate problems – including urinary problems.
