Prostate Cancer: the issue

Despite prostate cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men, with more than 417,000 new cases and 92,000 deaths in Europe recorded each year, very little is performed on prostate cancer management at EU level.

The European Union can no longer continue to overlook the second most common cause of cancer death in men in Europe. Recent evidence demonstrates that
population-based screening programmes for prostate cancer are effective, that they decrease mortality rates and that they increase the quality of life of patients and their families.

Urgent action is required to make sure that the new European Commission is mandated to support EU Member States in prostate cancer screening in their national cancer plans.
