Prostate Cancer


In this section you can find out about the experience of prostate cancer by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 55 men in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, treatment, side effects of treatments and impact on family and friends. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
