Cancer is a disease that has always been subject to an unhelpful and illogical taboo. When people mention “The Big C” they often do it in a hushed voice. Why? Don’t ask us, because we don’t know.
What we do know is that there a number of highly treatable cancers that would benefit from a lot more people talking openly about them and learning to spot the symptoms of such potentially devastating diseases while they are at an early stage to maximise the potential for successful treatment.
One such cancer is prostate cancer.
The Prostate Cancer Charity does what it says on the tin. They fund research, support sufferers and campaign to raise awareness of the disease.
“Prostate Cancer affects over 250,000 men and their families in the UK. This March we want everyone to find out about the most common cancer in men. Along with the support of M&S, you can help us spread the message and raise money so we can continue to fight prostate cancer on every front – through research, campaigning, support and information. Find information on prostate cancer and how to get involved to make this Prostate Cancer Awareness Month our biggest yet.
