Prostate facts for gay and bisexual men

Publish Date: 11/11/2013

Although prostate cancer and other prostate problems are the same for  all men whatever their sexuality – if you are gay, bisexual or a man who has sex with men, you may have specific questions about how this affects you and there are certain issues where you may need specific support and information.

Prostate Cancer UK have developed a new webpage with unique information for gay and biseuxal men.The information has been produced in co-operation with Stonewall and Out With Prostate Cancer, the UK's first support group exclusively for gay and bisexual men. 

The webpage covers the following topics and we urge every man to read it:

  • Prostate problems and prostate cancer
  • Testing for prostate cancer
  • Treatments for prostate cancer
  • Side effects of prostate cancer treatment  - including sexual side effects and erection problems,bowel problems and anal sensitivity, ejaculation and orgasm
  • HIV and prostate cancer
  • Speaking with health professionals, including your partner
  • Getting more support, including links to Out with Prostate Cancer the group which offers support to gay and bisexual men via their Manchester meetings and online to men throughout the country

Here at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation we know that gay and bisexual men need as much information and support as they can get if they are affected by such issues so we are delighted that Prostate Cancer UK the leading UK charity for men with prostate cancer and prostate problems has added this information to their already invaluable resources.

Currently The Lesbian & Gay Foundation are raising awareness of the needs for  gay, bisexual and all men who have sex with men to be more informed about how: Prostate Cancer, Bowel Cancer, Anal Cancer, Testicular Cancer and Male Breast Cancer affect all men who have sex with men.

We are currently raising funds to go towards providing further unique literature for gay and bisexual men on the issue of Prostate health, cancer and other related issues.
