Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. It usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs for many years.
Prostate Cancer UK
Prostate Cancer UK's top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer killing men. We’re investing millions to find better treatments and better tests that can spot fast-growing cancers early, and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives.
