About Run for the Future
It is a sad fact that more than 40,000 UK men are diagnosed every year with prostate cancer and over 10,000 do not survive, about the same number of deaths as women from breast cancer.
But prostate cancer research receives only 25% of the funding spent on research into breast cancer in women. The PSA blood test is the only diagnostic test available to screen for prostate cancer but, sadly, only 8% of men currently receive this potentially life-saving test so it's particularly important that men around the age of 40 to 45, with a family history of prostate cancer,make that fact known to their GP and request a PSA test.
