The need for a screening programme for prostate cancer has never been more urgent. Last year, almost 12,000 fathers, brothers, sons and mates lost their lives to this devastating disease.
A screening programme could have made all the difference to these men by catching their cancer early when we know it’s easier to cure. Early diagnosis isn’t just important, it's vital.Donate to give men an early diagnosis
The key to earlier diagnosis, and the best way to protect men from this devastating disease, is a screening programme. But right now a screening programme for prostate cancer isn’t possible, and men are paying the price with their lives.
It’s not possible because we need a test that’s far more accurate and reliable at spotting the disease. Funding research into better tests is the only way to achieve a reliable screening programme for men. But we need your help to get us there.Act now to stop men paying the price
Dr Jennifer Munkley may have the test that men need. Unlike the PSA test, it can accurately differentiate between low-risk prostate cancer and cancer that needs urgent treatment. It means it could be used as part of a national screening programme for prostate cancer.
Our major breakthrough was last year. When I found the test, I knew it was something really important.
Men’s lives are hanging in the balance. But funding research like Dr Munkley’s could put an end to the injustice.
Right now, with no screening programme, a diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer could happen to any man. Funding research is an opportunity to lower the odds of that happening. Together we can make a difference.
