Since the ban on smoking in public places and the proportional decline of Lung Cancer, Prostate Cancer is now the most common cause of cancer death in the UK. However, it doesn't have to be that way. If caught early, the most appropriate treatment can be successfully applied to most problems of the prostate. Nearly 80% of men are reluctant to discuss their prostate problems or visit their GP when the initial symptoms start to show. This is either through lack of awareness, reluctance or just pure embarrassment.

The treatment (where symptoms are sudden and severe) is usually with painkillers and a 2 to 4-week course of antibiotics. Further hospital treatment may be needed if you're very ill or unable to pee. See Symptoms
