This article was originally published in Clinica
Prostate cancer is set to overtake lung cancer as the most common form of cancer diagnosed in the UK. By 2018, the Institute of Cancer Research warns that prostate cancer will affect one in four men. The ICR says that more money should be spent on research into the disease. At present, only £1 million (S1.6 million) is spent each year, compared with £16 million for breast cancer or £15 million on AIDS. A mass screening plan using the PSA (prostate specific antigen) test was ruled out by the National Health Service after researchers decided that the test was too unreliable.
