“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.

Take our 30-second risk checker and share it with the men you love

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, but it is treatable if caught early.

However, only around a third (35%) of men realise early stage prostate cancer often doesn’t have symptoms, putting thousands at risk of late diagnosis. This is why it’s important to know your risk. Catching prostate cancer early saves lives.
