Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

March is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and to mark this important occasion, The Urology Foundation has launched a coordinated campaign to raise awareness and shine a spotlight on all those impacted by and involved in prostate cancer.

The ‘We See You’ campaign is: raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer; encouraging people to speak to their healthcare professional with any concerns; providing a platform for people to share their experiences of prostate cancer; and supporting those involved in fighting this disease. We firmly believe that we can all make a change for people experiencing prostate cancer both now and in the future. We encourage everyone to share your stories of your experiences of prostate cancer using #ProstateCancerAndMe

We launched in March and will be running throughout Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and beyond. We have developed resources for those impacted by prostate cancer, which healthcare professionals can also order to be used with their patients. These are:

We’re working with Network Rail and will be at stations including King’s Cross in March where we’ll be out and about meeting people and raising awareness.

Our refreshed newsletter ‘Urology Matters’ also launched this month and has a prostate cancer theme, in aid of the awareness month. It can be downloaded here.

We have also attended a prostate cancer policy roundtable event in Parliament last week ahead of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. We joined 24 experts in the field to discuss how the community can drive service innovation and prepare for the future of prostate cancer care. There were lots of valuable conversations around addressing health inequalities and commitment in the room to use this as a starting point to push for meaningful change.

All in all, March is set to be a busy month with lots going on to raise awareness of prostate cancer and the work we’re doing in the space.
