When it comes to the seriousness of prostate cancer, the facts are simple. It’s the most common cancer in men and every year in the UK, over 40,000 men are diagnosed with it, and the risk increases with age.
Yet research actually shows that many men don’t know anything about their prostate or the symptoms of prostate cancer. It’s a worrying find, which is why it’s important to highlight that the prostate is located below the bladder and is vital to a man’s sex life as it produces the fluid in semen.
With prostate cancer, the most common symptoms include a need to urinate often, difficulty urinating, and pain when you urinate or during sex.
When it comes to your health, it is important to book an appointment with your GP if you have any concerns.
