Specialist prostate cancer clinics to open

New specialist clinics are to open next year for men with prostate cancer to help men deal with the side effects from treatment.

The Irish Cancer Society, in partnership with the Movember Foundation, has revealed the clinics will be located in two designated cancer care centres at St James's Hospital and Galway University Hospital.

They'll be launched next year on a pilot basis under a new programme called the Care, Advice, Support and Education (CASE) initiative.

The incidence of prostate cancer is growing every year with over 3,000 men diagnosed in Ireland in 2010.
