Unlike breast cancer, there are no screening programmes for prostate cancer in Europe. We campaign for a Europe-wide PSA-based programme, which research shows could save 20,000 men’s lives.
Treatment of prostate cancer is variable between European countries and within countries. We talk to politicians in Europe to raise their awareness of the issues and impose standards.
Poor quality of life after treatment
Treatments for prostate cancer can leave men with many life-limiting effects. We are researching these impacts and campaigning for better support
Lack of information and support
Men with prostate cancer can be left isolated and lacking information. We nurture and encourage prostate cancer patient support groups around Europe.
