More about this Webinar

Many more men are more likely to die of preventable cancer than women, and even more unlikely to talk about their disease. It is estimated that over 78,000 men will be diagnosed with cancer in 2019, with an average five-year survival rate of 69%.


With so many men being diagnosed and surviving cancer, this webinar will explore the physical and psychological effect that cancer can have on many aspects of a man’s life.
