Cancer affecting MEN

 

Over 50,000 men are diagnosed in the UK with a male specific cancer – prostate, testicular and penile – every year. Sadly, these figures are on the increase. Orchid is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by these three cancers. We are working hard to understand the causes of these cancers and identify new treatments, to promote better awareness and encourage an early diagnosis, and to ensure that men and their families receive the care and support they need.

·         Testicular cancer most commonly affects men aged 15-45

·         Prostate cancer can affect men under the age of 50

·         Over 630 men in the UK will be diagnosed with penile cancer this year
