EMHF president Dr Ian Banks called on men across Europe to seize the opportunity offered by the relaunch today of the Forum's Your Prostate website.
The site enables men to ask questions - anything at all - concerning their prostate in English, Spanish or German. Questions are answered by a urologist or urology nurse - all online by email. It's fast, free and confidential.
'This is a chance to deal with whatever’s concerning you about your prostate,' said Dr Banks, 'and to have a genuine conversation online with a health professional through a genuinely independent site.
‘Not only will you find out the answer to your own question but you'll be taking part in a major public research project.
'Obviously no names will appear and no data will be passed on but your input will enable us to gather information from men across Europe on their experience of developing problems involving the prostate, seeking support, diagnosis and treatment, and the responses they have had from health service providers in regard to these issues which will be published for the benefits of the scientific and public health policy communities with the aim of helping men everywhere in Europe get better prostate care.'
