Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men, and it’s estimated that more than 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in England. This form of cancer develops slowly and can often go undetected for many years. The main symptoms that people experience are an increased need to urinate, and a feeling that your bladder has not fully emptied. Most cases develop in men over 50.
Depending on the severity of the prostate cancer, treatment isn’t always necessary straightaway, and a watch and wait approach is sometimes used instead. Most insurance companies won’t consider offering travel insurance for people who have or have had prostate cancer. At It’s So Easy Travel Insurance, we understand that everyone’s circumstance is different, which is why we use a medical screening system developed by medical professionals, to ask all the relevant questions about your diagnosis, so that we can find the best travel insurance for you. If you had prostate cancer in the past and are no longer seeing a consultant, this may not affect your policy at all!
