Professor Joe O'Sullivan and Dr Gillian Prue will present a talk on Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, affecting 1 in 9 men. The vast majority are now cured, thanks to better understanding and treatment of the disease. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 66.

Professor Joe O’Sullivan, Professor of Radiation Oncology, QUB, and Clinical Director of Oncology at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre will discuss symptoms of the disease and ways to improve prognosis. Joe will describe the world-leading prostate cancer research taking place at CCRCB as part of the Movember Centre of Excellence in Prostate Cancer Research as well as the cutting-edge therapy being delivered at the Cancer Centre. Joe’s colleague Dr Gillian Prue will join him to discuss the importance of lifestyle in prostate cancer and to describe the research she is leading out on in the subject here in the University.
