Prostate overtakes breast as 'most common cancer' - Expert comment

Professor Lawrence Young, Director of the Warwick Cancer Research Centre, University of Warwick, comments on the figures released today that show prostate cancer was the most common cancer diagnosis in 2018.

He said: "The increased diagnosis of prostate cancer represents a success in early detection of this disease which results in more successful treatment.

"This highlights the importance of men seeing their GPs as soon as symptoms arise and the value of tests to detect early cancer."
