The annual report for the Orchid cancer campaign for whom I am a spokesperson and to which I contributed featured in the ITN news and Huffington post. I appealled for urgent research to develop tests to allow the dangerous prostate cancers to be distinguished from the less dangerous ones at diagnosis.

In 2014 I led a research project from Cambridge University where I analysed the accuracy of the diagnostic methods for prostate cancer which were the standard at the time. This showed that the methods were inaccurate. The results were reported on national and international TV as well as the lay and medical press. Thankfully, since I reported this work, the methods by which prostate cancer can be diagnosed have improved.
