A special thanks to MEPs Tiemo Wölken and Tomislav Sokol for chairing the programme and addressing the important topics of early detection and awareness raising of prostate cancer.


Every year, around 450,000 European men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. It has overtaken colorectal cancer.


107,000 European men die of prostate cancer each year. The cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women.


The yearly costs of PCa in Europe are 9 billion euros, with healthcare accounting for 5.8 billion euros.
