Penile Cancer Support Service – Scotland
Although a relatively rare cancer, there is a higher incidence of Penile Cancer in Scotland relative to the rest of the UK – 70 cases a year in a population of 5.2 million, against 562 cases in the rest of the UK population of 60.2 million. Also, those affected by Penile Cancer in Scotland are being diagnosed at a younger age. The reasons for these two statistics are not yet clear but the impacts on those affected are huge.
In order to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms and to better provide support to those affected and their families, Orchid has established a Penile Cancer Support service in Scotland.
