High risk of prostate cancer in county

Men living in Roscommon, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Cork and Wicklow have a greater chance of getting prostate cancer.

That’s according to a report from the National Cancer Registry.

High rates of prostate cancer have been identified across the West of the country in a new map highlighting where the disease hits.

The new “health atlas” shows how people living in different counties are at higher risk of developing certain common cancers.

There are now more than 122,000 people living after cancer in Ireland and of these, 94,000 are still living 10 years after first being diagnosed.
