PROSTaid covers Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire; we rely on donations and bequests to continue our work and receive no government funding. We are run by prostate cancer patients, families, friends and urological professionals.
We provide information and counselling for all prostate cancer and prostate disease sufferers and their families, given by local men who themselves have prostate cancer and diseases of the prostate. We run four support groups in Leicester to help local men and their partners come to terms with prostate cancer. One of these groups is for African/Caribbean men that is the first one of its kind in the UK.
We fund two nurses one at the Urology & one at the Oncology Department at Leicester General Hospital &Leicester Royal Infirmary, The largest amount of prostate cancer specialist nurses in any hospital in the UK. We have also produced patient information films to view on our website for most of the treatments locally available for their prostate cancer.
We have funded a new Thulium laser and helped with getting a DaVinci Robot to perform minimally invasive treatment for prostate cancer. This reduces recovery times by 43% and offers a new minimally invasive treatment for the disease. We are currently funding ground-breaking research into a new diagnostic test to enable faster more accurate diagnosis for patients.
We run master classes for our medical professionals and constantly raise awareness amongst local men, so prostate cancer is spotted earlier and can be treated effectively.
