Des Bishop shares cancer journey while urging men to get their prostate examined

Des Bishop, along with some of Ireland's most talented stand-up comedians are encouraging men everywhere to get checked for prostate cancer and discussing their health.

The video interview was created as part of The Marie Keating Foundation’s ‘Stand Up For Your Prostate’ campaign.

This Blue September campaign hopes to challenge the taboo or embarrassment that some men can feel discussing their prostate health and encourage men through comedy to talk about what is an important health issue.

3,665 men in Ireland are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, but when detected early prostate cancer is so treatable.

The Marie Keating Foundation’s second annual Stand Up For Your Prostate campaign encourages men to be more open about their health and to speak to their GP about a PSA test when they turn 50, or 45 with a family history of prostate cancer.
