My story

[p]So, like many there is a history of prostate cancer within my family. My Grandfather died with it, my Father has had treatment over the last few years because of it and I have started getting tested. So much is still to be understood about this form of cancer which of course requires the right people and funding. What is great about the Prostate Project is that they don't have massive overheads like some charities, their admin costs are below 5% meaning that 95 pence of every pound contacted goes to where it is needed. [/p][p]What you should know is; [/p][p]Prostate cancer has become the biggest cancer killer of men. It kills one man every hour.[/p][p]Men are twice as likely to get prostate cancer with a family history (brother, father or uncle) of the disease.[/p][p]?Black men are a higher risk, so should consider having a PSA test from the age of 45.[/p][p]Each year nearly 47,000 men in the UK are told they have prostate cancer and more than 11,500 die of the disease.[/p][p]Cancer of the prostate can be treated effectively even if it has spread beyond the gland but the disease must be caught early to achieve excellent cure rates.[/p][p]It is vital that men over 50 are aware of the potential problem and consult their GP routine.[/p][p]More information can be found here [url=https://www.prostate-project.org.uk]https://www.prostate-project.org.uk[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
