Orchid exists to save men's lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers through a range of support services, pioneering research and promoting awareness. Over 43,000 men will be diagnosed with a male-specific cancer in 2013; from sons to grandfathers all men face the risk of prostate, penile or testicular cancer. Orchid plays a leading role in the fight against male cancer through world class research, awareness and education campaigns and by supporting patients. We have developed many new services for men and their families. We now offer leaflets, specialist Factsheets, a newsletter (low-down), an award winning DVD, awareness talks and Orchid Roadshows and an enquiry service supported by two Orchid Male Cancer Information Nurses; their aim is to support anyone affected by male cancer. Be male cancer aware! Our website has all the latest information, so please don't delay in getting 'checked out' by a GP if you are concerned.
