Prostate Cancer

About prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men with 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year.

The causes of prostate cancer are largely unknown but certain things can increase your risk of developing the condition. The chances of developing prostate cancer increase as you get older – most cases develop in men aged 50 or older.

For reasons not yet understood, prostate cancer is more common in men of African-Caribbean or African descent, and less common in Asian men. Recent research also suggests that obesity increases the risk of prostate cancer.

Common cancer symptoms can include:

  • passing urine more frequently than usual, especially at night
  • needing to rush to the toilet to pass urine
  • the feeling of not completely emptying your bladder
  • straining or taking a long time while urinating.
