Prostate cancer now most common cancer diagnosis, new figures show

Prostate cancer has become the most commonly diagnosed cancer in England, provisional official figures show.

There were 49,029 diagnoses of prostate cancer in 2018 – 7,828 more than in the previous year, according to cancer incidence data from Public Health England (PHE).

It means the disease has overtaken breast cancer as the most commonly diagnosed a decade earlier than experts had predicted.

The data also shows that there were more cancers diagnosed in 2018 in males than females – 165,228 versus 151,452. This means an average of 868 invasive cancers were diagnosed each day. 

Just over half (54.0%) of all registrations were either breast, prostate, lung or bowel cancer.

PHE said the increase in registrations of invasive cancers in males was mainly down to the “Fry and Turnbull effect” in prostate cancer. Stephen Fry and Bill Turnbull went public with their diagnoses in early 2018, raising awareness in the process.

NHS clinical director for cancer Professor Peter Johnson said: “As people live longer, we’re likely to see prostate cancer diagnosed more often, and with well-known figures like Rod Stewart, Stephen Fry and Bill Turnbull all talking openly about their diagnosis, more people will be aware of the risk.

The NHS Long Term Plan is ramping up action to catch tens of thousands more cancers at early stages, and more people coming forward for checks and care means the disease increasingly is detected at an early stage, when treatment is most successful and survival chances are highest.

T. Clarke raise funds to help cancer fighters

Last year the brilliant T. Clarke Services Limited raised funds for us at their staff Christmas party with a raffle.

We are very pleased to announce that they raised a massive £3000 which will go along way towards funding vital holidays for families fighting cancer.

We would like to thank the management and staff at T. Clarke for making a huge difference in the cancer fights of those we help.

Free Making Memories Holidays for Cancer fighting families.

We have purchased two luxury holiday homes at  Haven, Burnham on Sea holiday park for the use of cancer sufferers* and their families, completely free of charge.

It has been a huge success with the holiday home being fully booked every year!

The idea behind this is for the charity to provide holidays for people/families at an already difficult time.  We hope to give well deserved breaks to those that need it, allowing them to create some happy memories.

If you know of someone fighting cancer that deserves a break get in touch today and email contact@ballstocancer.com

The caravans are six birth (three bedroom) in a lovely location with all amenities with in walking distance (or a short drive with parking for those that need it)

Please get in touch by emailing contact@ballstocancer.com if you feel this would benefit you, your family or someone you know who’s lives have been affected by this horrific disease.

To help us to keep providing this service we need your donations. You can either donate via the donate page on this website or via text by simply texting Holiday to 70085 to donate £3
