1 in 6 men in the UK will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. (Cancer Research UK).
In males in the UK, prostate cancer is the most common cancer, with around 52,300 new cases every year, accounting for 27% of all new cases. 32 men die every day from the disease. (2016-2018 – Cancer Research UK).
Many of us know somebody who is suffering from prostate cancer, or has been a victim of it. Clearly that is true of us, Stu’s Band of Brothers, but Stuart isn’t the only one we know; a few of us have other close friends and family affected by this disease. And if you have read our profiles you will know that Stuart isn’t the only Brother to have contracted prostate cancer.
We would like to share some of our experiences with you. Click on any link below to read the story.

Prostate Cancer Risk Checker
Prostate Cancer UK has joined forces with the NHS to find the undiagnosed men who haven’t started prostate cancer treatment due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They’ve created a Risk Checker to help find them.
There are numerous organisations which provide support for sufferers and their families, or fund research.
