Dont let them tell you its an “Old Mans Disease”

Dont let them tell you its an “Old Mans Disease”

It is called an “Old mans disease” because it is a slow growing cancer and is not detected until a man has a need to visit his GP.

These are NHS statistics!!

Prostate cancer was detected in 28% of men aged between 30-39 who had died of something other than prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer was detected in 39% of men aged between 40-49 who had died of something other than prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer was detected in 53% of men aged between 50-59 who had died of something other than prostate cancer.

Please read this in conjunction with yesterdays block “Active Surveillance who would benefit”

    They do not want to spend the money on screening of men. In the UK, roughly the same number of men die from prostate cancer as women who die from breast cancer. There the “equality” ends. About 16 times as much funding is spent on screening, research and treatment for breast cancer as is spent on the same for prostate cancer. The argument is that women are better at fund raising and campaigning. That is a pretty poor excuse for such disparity in funding. The nonsense spoken about false negatives and more harm than good of a screening campaign should be seen for what it is, a smokescreen to avoid spending money on men’s health.
