​​​giving men a better chance of beating prostate cancer 

As of 24 March, the number of COVID-19 cases in the UK has been rising rapidly.   Many people with prostate cancer are understandably worried about how the coronavirus might affect them. The most important thing is to follow the advice of your healthcare team. 

​​

We have taken guidance from several cancer charities called the ‘One Cancer Voice’ on the most common questions that people affected by cancer are asking about the coronavirus and you can read this information here


Cancer clinical trials - Due to the coronavirus outbreak, some clinical trials for cancer patients may stop recruiting new patients for now. Your healthcare team will continue to support and monitor you if you are part of a clinical trial. Talk to your team if you have questions or concerns about a trial you are taking part in.


​Please follow GOV.UK and the NHS website for the latest information about coronavirus, including ways to reduce your risk of catching or spreading the virus.

Sir Rod Stewart speaking at a fundraising event for the Prostate Project and golf's European Tour Foundation.


He shared that has been given the all-clear after being diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago.


Sir Rod urged men to get checked, adding: "Guys, you've got to really go to the doctor."


​Men with male relatives who have had prostate cancer, black men and men over 50 are at higher risk of getting the disease.
