Stephen Fry announced last year that he had his prostate removed after his cancer diagnosis. Nile Rodgers and Jim Broadbent are also sharing their diagnosis as part of The Men, We are With You awareness campaign started by Prostate Cancer UK, Sky News reported.
One in eight men in the United Kingdom will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, or about 40,000 men. More than 11,000 men die from the disease every year, the BBC reported. The risk increases as men age with most cases happening in men 50 and older. Those who are obese are at an increased risk, the National Health Service said.
