Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. It usually develops slowly, so there may be no signs for many years.

Symptoms of prostate cancer do not usually appear until the prostate is large enough to affect the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the penis (urethra).

STI symptoms that need checking

Many people with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) do not get symptoms, so it's worth getting tested even if you feel fine.

 

If you think you have an STI, the earlier you're tested, the sooner treatment can be given if it's needed.

Cancer of the testicle is 1 of the less common cancers, and tends to mostly affect men between 15 and 49 years of age.

Typical symptoms are a painless swelling or lump in 1 of the testicles, or any change in shape or texture of the testicles.
