“What on Earth is a prostate?!"
The most common cancer in men starts in a place half of us know next-to-nothing about. It’s time to change that.
Men's health can be a minefield. Everyone has gaps in their knowledge, and everyone one of us probably believes something that just isn't true.
By tackling widespread myths and misconceptions around the prostate and prostate cancer, we can make sure more dads, brothers, sons and friends make informed choices about their health - with potentially lifesaving results.
Help us separate fact from fiction, get the nation talking and save men's lives.
