In the UK, about one in eight men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives and it is the most common cancer among men in the UK. Prostate cancer mainly affects men over 50 and the risk increases with age. The average age for men to be diagnosed is between 65 and 69 years.

Find out more about possible signs and symptoms and what to do about them by visiting one of the information stands or contacting Prostate Cancer UK’s specialist nurses at 0800 074 8383. For more information please visit prostatecanceruk.org
