In males in the UK, prostate cancer is the most common cancer and there are around 47,700 new prostate cancer cases every year, that's around 130 every day (2013-2015), and since the early 1990s, prostate cancer incidence rates have increased by 44% and over the last decade, prostate cancer incidence rates have increased by around 6%.
Around 4 in 10 prostate cancer cases are diagnosed at a late stage in England and Northern Ireland and around 6 in 10 in Scotland (2010-2014).
Prostate cancer in England is less common in males living in the most deprived areas and is most common in Black males, then White males and least common in Asian males.
