Fighting Prostate Cancer:
A Survival Guide
A survival guide to help men understand a little more about prostate cancer and how it is diagnosed: the easy-to-follow language is aimed at men and their families to help them navigate the maze of treatment options that will be made available in a constantly changing field and to appreciate and manage the uncertainties that shroud prostate cancer.

Urology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the male and female urinary tract, and the male reproductive system. The main organs associated with urology include the kidneys, ureters, bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, prostate and the male reproductive organs.
Although the specialty of urology comes under the banner of surgery, a knowledge of anatomy, physiology, general medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and other specialties is also required by a urologist because of the wide variety of clinical problems encountered.
The Fighting Prostate Cancer campaign enables men to seek advice and get prostate cancer screenings in familiar surroundings rather than the traditional clinical backdrops of hospitals. Prostate cancer has become the number one cancer in men with 1 in 8 men being diagnosed with the disease. It has overtaken breast cancer as the third most deadly form of the disease after lung and bowel cancer. With the support of Queen’s Hospital, Burton and Burton Albion Football Club, we have created an innovative health campaign designed to bring awareness and help alleviate the ‘fear factor.’

We would like to thank Burton Mail Heroes Award for rewarding us with so much positive news. We feel honoured and privileged to be with so many brave and amazing people.
For the first time, more men are dying from prostate cancer each year than women are from breast cancer, making the male disease the third biggest cancer killer in the UK.
