Get Checked

If you are over 50 (younger for those with relevant family history and black men) you should talk to your GP about a prostate health check. Catching prostate cancer early gives you a far better chance of beating it.

Prostate cancer can be symptomless, but speak to your GP if you experience any of the following, regardless of your age:

  • needing to pee more frequently, often during the night.

  • needing to rush to the toilet.

  • difficulty in starting to pee (hesitancy)

  • straining or taking a long time while peeing

  • weak flow

  • feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully

  • blood in urine or blood in semen.

Risk Checker

1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer. If you’re over 50, or you’re black, or your dad or brother had it, you’re at even higher risk.


Prostate cancer is not always life-threatening. But when it is, the earlier you catch it the more likely it is to be cured.
