​​​ What You Should Know:


 • Prostate cancer has become the biggest cancer killer of men. It kills one man every hour

 • Each year over 40,000 men in the UK are told they have prostate cancer and more than 11,000 die of the disease


 • Worldwide numbers are staggering. Each year over half a million men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 200,000 die from it


 • Cancer of the prostate can be treated effectively even if it has spread beyond the gland but the disease must be caught early to achieve excellent cure rates


 • It is vital that men over 50 are aware of the potential problem and consult their GP routinely


​ • Every man over 50 has the legal right, by Act of Parliament, to a PSA test
