Who we are

Every year over 50,000 men in the UK will be diagnosed with prostate, testicular or penile cancer. Of these men over 47,000 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, over 2,200 will be diagnosed with testicular cancer and over 600 will be diagnosed with the rare penile cancer. Sadly, these numbers are increasing with prostate cancer predicted to become the most common cancer in the UK by 2030.
