Prostate Action and The Bob Champion Cancer Trust, have teamed up with NHS Choices and talkhealth to present an Online Clinic on Prostate Disease for a week from 25 November - 1 December 2011.
Clinical experts will be available to answer questions about issues surrounding prostate disease, treatments and also to provide you with valuable help and guidance.
Prostate disease affects one in two men in the UK. Some 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. Prostate Action, the only national charity dedicated to beating all three prostate diseases, say: 'Men of all ages are being let down by the lack of research into prostate disease and poor levels of understanding and education.'
The Bob Champion Cancer Trust was established after jockey Bob Champion was diagnosed with cancer in two parts of his body at the height of his riding career. The dream that kept him going through the long months of chemotherapy that followed was that one day he might win the Aintree Grand National on Aldaniti. Against all odds, in 1981 his dream came true.
The service is sposored by AXA PPP healthcare.
