What will be in the talk?
A Patient Support Officer and bladder cancer patient will highlight the following key awareness messages:
The speakers will also be happy to answer any questions you might have. Our volunteer speaker has had his own personal experience of bladder cancer, and therefore will have a great deal of knowledge to share.
Why building awareness is important:
Over 20,500 people in the UK are diagnosed each year with bladder cancer and it is not a rare cancer. Despite this, there is very limited public awareness of the disease and diagnosis can often be late, particularly in women. It also has the highest recurrence rate of any known cancer - up to 80%. Patient outcomes can be considerably improved by early diagnosis - up to 80% survival rate if caught early enough. That’s why we’re dedicated to raising awareness through the work of our charity.
