Be Prostate Cancer Aware

Did you know that prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the UK? 

In the UK, 1 in 4 black men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. This is double the risk faced by all men (1 in 8). 

Black men are more likely to get prostate cancer if they are aged 45 or over, their father or brother has had it, or their mother or sister has had breast cancer. 

Most men with early prostate cancer have no symptoms at all. That is why it is important to know your risk and take action early. 

If you are a man with African and/or Afro Caribbean descent, aged 45 and above, Picton Network invite you to find out more about your risk and be prostate cancer aware. For some men, having a proactive discussion with their GP surgery will be lifesaving.
