– Professor Malcolm Mason, Prostate cancer expert
Prostate cancer needs research. We have many questions and research is key to providing answers about the disease. As our population ages, growing numbers of men will be diagnosed with the disease.
Over the last 40 years prostate cancer incidence rates in Great Britain have tripled, and three-quarters of cases are diagnosed in men aged over 65 years.
Half of all British men are likely to be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime by the year 2027, experts predict.
