NEW developments in surgery for prostate cancer will be discussed at a support group meeting.

Urology consultant Lemke Solomon will give a talk at the Prostate Cancer Network on July 3.

It will take place at the Sacred Heart Church, 356a London Road, Waterlooville, 7pm and the audience can raise questions in confidence with Mr Solomon.

Christopher White, from the committee, said: ‘Prostate cancer kills one man every hour in the UK, or 10,000 a year, and has overtaken lung cancer as the most common cancer in men.

‘However, if caught early it can usually be cured with modern treatments. Men are notoriously poor in addressing their own health problems, and unfortunately with prostate cancer they may not know they have a problem until it’s too late.’

Admission is free and open to all.
