WE ARE PROST8 UK
A NEW FORCE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST PROSTATE CANCER

Prostate Cancer has some frightening statistics

48,000

men will develop prostate cancer this year in the UK

+44%

increase since the 1990’s, prostate cancer is on the rise

11,000+

men will die this year, most due to late diagnosis

1 in 8

men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime

But ONE statistic in particular stands out……

This year up to 12,000 men with early stage prostate cancer will receive the same invasive treatment as men with advanced cancer!

If you have a prostate cancer diagnosis you deserve to know about all the treatment choices.  Prostate cancer treatment is advancing all the time and today there are newer, more targeted and far less invasive treatment options available such as focal ablation, which includes ultrasound and cryotherapy.  If suitable for your diagnosis they can provide markedly improved lifestyle outcomes.   But right now these are rarely offered as a first choice.
Prost8 UK is here to change that, starting right now….

Breaking News: 

Focal Therapy Provides Less Invasive Alternative Treatment for Men with Recurring Prostate Cancer Following Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy is one of the most common treatments currently prescribed for prostate cancer in the UK.  However, following radiotherapy treatment, there is a 1 in 5 chance that prostate cancer will return.  In the past, men in this unfortunate situation have been treated with a palliative care strategy or radical surgery.  

The Alternative: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU).  HIFU is a highly effective and minimally invasive treatment option approved by NICE and the NHS which has so far been primarily used to treat early stage treatable prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer sufferers could be treated with ultrasound to avoid side effects, major study finds.

At least 1 in 8 men in the UK will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime!

However, men with a family history of prostate cancer (father, grandfather, brother, uncle or cousin) and those of Black African/Caribbean decent are twice as likely to develop prostate cancer – up to 1 in 4 – so it is even more important to get checked if you experience symptoms.

Carl Pilkington gives in to a prostate examination 

Prostate Cancer is certainly not a light-hearted subject, BUT if a little bit of humour gets people involved and helps to debunk the fears and taboos that surround the process, then let’s use humour! 

If we can encourage just one man to get checked in time then it is a job well done.

If Carl can do it, so can you…..

Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and, of course, Carl Pilkington show just how simple the process of a prostate examination is – in their own inimitable way!

Important warning: contains strong language!
