Too many men are needlessly dying of prostate cancer. The latest data shows that the number of men dying each year has gone up (again) and underscores the terrible fact this disease is as big as breast cancer.
The latest data shows that 12,000 men died of prostate cancer in one year. That’s 12,000 friends, brothers, lovers and dads. That’s one man every 45 minutes in the UK; the time it takes to play 3 holes of golf.
And men over 50, black men and men with a family history of prostate cancer are at highest risk.
