- One man dies every hour from prostate cancer in the UK
- One in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, the same odds as women diagnosed with breast cancer
- 40,975 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year
- 10,721 men die of prostate cancer each year
In the run-up to Father's Day ITV is running a campaign with charity Prostate Cancer UK to raise awareness of the disease, which kills at least one man every hour.
The Stand By Your Man campaign is asking women to pledge their voice and talk to the men in their lives about how prostate cancer can be identified, treated or monitored, potentially saving thousands of lives every year.
Any women hoping to pledge their support can do so here.
You will be sent an info card which you can use to have a conversation with your man, and/or send a card to a man in your life with the information on.
