Lift the lid on Prostate Health

Prostate cancer is the third most common male cancer in Hong Kong. Every year over one thousand men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, and about 200 die from the disease. Even with its high incidence, men still don’t seem to take the disease seriously and that is potentially, the greatest danger of all.

Prostate cancer symptoms can be common to many other conditions and in some cases may not be anything to be concerned about. However, if left undiagnosed and untreated for too long, prostate cancer can be deadly! The best way for men to safeguard their health and the risk of developing prostate cancer is to speak to their doctor and not ignore minor symptoms.

In a bid to boost awareness of the disease, Hong Kong Cancer Fund has launched an education campaign targeting men who are over 50. This year we are delighted to have Richard Ng, a well-known comedian in Hong Kong, to help us “lift the lid on prostate health” and encourage men to talk to their doctor about symptoms and screening. Look out for our new TVC all across Hong Kong starting from today!
