PIF member Prostate Cancer UK has joined forces with NHS England to launch a national campaign.

Find the 14,000 men aims to reach those who have not started treatment for prostate cancer since the beginning of the pandemic.  

It asks members of the public to share Prostate Cancer UK's 30-second risk checker as widely as possible.

According to NHS England data, prostate cancer accounts for a third of those not treated for cancer compared to before the pandemic. 

Referrals and treatments for prostate cancer dropped significantly during COVID-19, with men less likely to visit their GP and discuss prostate cancer. 

Although referrals and treatment levels for most other cancers have now recovered or even risen above pre-pandemic levels, the number of missing prostate cancer diagnoses is growing. 

This is compounded by the fact early prostate cancer rarely has symptoms that would prompt men to visit their GP.  

Prostate cancer is very treatable if caught early, so it is vitally important these men are found quickly before their cancer spreads.
