UCAN Stands for Urological CANcers

  • There are five urological cancers: prostate, bladder, kidney, testicular and cancer of the penis. They mainly affect men, although women can suffer from kidney and bladder cancers. Urological cancers are more common than many people realise, and account for 1 in 3 of all cancers in men and 1 in 5 of all cancers in men and women.

UCAN Awareness DVD Launched

DVD launch Fiona

UCAN launched their urological cancer awareness DVD at Satrosphere Science Centre on Tuesday 25 November 2014. Guests were welcomed by UCAN Chairman, Professor Sam McClinton and watched the first screening of the new DVD which was produced by Neil Weightman, who runs his own digital media company and sponsored by George Copland, Managing Director, GEO-Energy Consultancy Ltd.

The DVD was instigated by companies with offshore installations and vessels who wanted their workforce to be made aware of urological cancers which account for 1 in 3 of all cancers in men and 1 in 5 cancers in men and women.

The UCAN nurse team have for a number of years been delivering awareness presentations to the business sector and the community throughout the North-east and it is hoped with this DVD will reach an even wider audience both on and offshore.

The DVD features Consultant Urological Surgeon Miss Justine Royle who explains about urological cancers, the facts, symptoms and why early diagnosis is so important. Two former UCAN patients, Alan Harrow and Karen Smith also tell their stories about their diagnosis, treatment and subsequent return to good health. The key message throughout the DVD is that if anyone is at all worried, and think they may have any of the symptoms of urological cancer, then they should go and see their GP as soon as possible – If in doubt check it out.

The DVD is available now (suggested minimum donation £10.00) by calling the UCAN office 01224 559312 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or from the website www.ucanfundraise.org.uk.
