Prostate Action is the only national charity dedicated to beating all three prostate diseases: benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer and prostatitis. Through funding research and education, they will improve the lives of men living today and help secure the health of future generations.
Prostate disease affects one in two men in the UK. 37,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year whilst 3.2 million men suffer with symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Prostatitis accounts for almost a quarter of visits to a urologist and predominantly affects men in their 30-50s. Men of all ages are being let down by the lack of research into prostate disease and poor levels of understanding and education. Prostate Action is here to change this.
Prostate Action funds research into all three prostate diseases – benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer and prostatitis. The research we fund tackles holes in our knowledge, explores new treatment options and investigates prevention. Increasing our knowledge of prostate disease is the only way we are going to beat it.
For more information on current research projects Prostate Action is funding and has funded in the past, please visit our research pages.
Through our Masterclass programme, Prostate Action has trained over 3,500 medical professionals in the latest advances in treating prostate disease. Visit the Masterclasses page for more information.
We help fund aspects of the Prostate Cancer Support Federation. Funding secured by Prostate Action allows the Federation to provide conferences to men and their families on all aspects of prostate cancer, including new developments in research.
We have part-funded the UK’s first nurse dedicated to helping men with advanced prostate cancer.
