What are we looking to achieve:

To “RAISE THE AWARENESS” of Prostate Cancer in Wales. “EVERY MAN should have access to the treatment that is best for his cancer and his lifestyle.” Leaflets and booklets about Prostate Cancer need to be more readily available across Wales.

To provide A LINK to those seeking where to get ADVICE & GUIDANCE on Prostate Cancer as well as information on events and how to become involved, as the number of men needing care for Prostate Cancer is certain to rise in the next few years.

To improve and provide BETTER FACILITIES, information and meeting places for men and their families to discuss any queries they may have regarding their symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and lifestyle.

The PSA blood test should be at least offered as part of an annual health check for ALL men, it would then be the mans OWN choice as to whether he decides to have the health check offered to him.
