Early Diagnosis
Early Diagnosis
Early detection and diagnosis of cancer is the key to a successful outcome. Treatment is more effective and in many cases much less severe if a cancer is diagnosed in its early stages. The clinic is designed to impart information to patients about the disease and how to diagnose it early.
Coping with Cancer
Coping With Cancer
The diagnosis of cancer can have a devastating impact on the patient and his relatives. It can have major financial implications as well as the stress of dealing with the disease and its treatment. Help is available and charities such as McMillan can provide useful assistance for families coping with the disease.

Welcome

Nearly 25 per cent of men will develop prostate cancer once over the age of 60. Yet men of all ages are notoriously reluctant to seek medical help even when they develop persistent symptoms that suggest all is not well with their body.

The Men Against Cancer Foundation (MAC) was specifically set up in 2001 by a group of Northern Ireland business people and medical professionals concerned that this reluctance was responsible for unnecessary physical suffering and distress among men and their families and even premature death if neglected too long for medical intervention to be successful.

The original purpose of the Foundation was to raise funding for the diagnosis clinic which was established in 2005 in Belfast City Hospital. Today MAC concentrates its efforts on funding equipment and advancements in medical research dedicated primarily to the treatment of men's cancers and prostate cancer in particular. The clinic is open to all men within charge.

Uniquely for a charity MAC gives 100 pence of every pound raised to its chosen projects. No money is absorbed by administration or third party costs. Projects funded are chosen with the advice of its medical advisers so that research priorities are directed to current treatment needs. MAC continues to work closely with Belfast City Hospital. MAC currently supports four major projects brought to it by its medical advisers.
