Orchid - Fighting Male Cancer
We are here …Because men can be afraid to face male cancer
Orchid exists to save men’s lives from prostate, testicular and penile cancers through pioneering research and awareness programmes. We are a small, influential charity, solely dedicated to improving the lives of men of all ages who are at risk of, or affected by male cancer.
For many of us, male cancers are “distant” or not spoken about. Seldom do we think that our own family members and loved ones will be affected. Yet, every day in the UK, 136 men would have died from a male form of cancer - that is at least 5 men per hour.
Over 50,000 fathers, sons, husbands and grandfathers and loved ones are diagnosed with these male specific cancers and these numbers are rising, with prostate cancer predicted to be the most common form of cancer.
