You probably don’t know what a prostate is, and that’s a big problem | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it

Most people don’t know what the prostate is for and some people don’t even know they have one, according to a new study highlighting the danger of prostate cancer.

The huge amount of ignorance around the gland could prove lethal to men, a charity has warned, and it may become the UK’s most common cancer.

The poor awareness of the gland – which can’t be seen outside of the body but sits underneath the bladder – might blind men to the risks and could lead to the disease not being tackled, warned Prostate Cancer UK.
