What is #OnlyMenCan?
Whilst plenty of campaigns are dedicated for women, we decided to initiate an awareness campaign focusing on Malaysian men — since prostate cancer is a silent killer that impacts Only Men.
Prostate cancer is a silent killer that impacts Only Men.
In Malaysia, more than 60% of prostate cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage. We want to raise awareness on the importance of prostate health, risks and symptoms of prostate cancer and encourage early detection of prostate cancer in order to save our men.
There are things #OnlyMenCan do, like surviving prostate cancer — only if detected and treated early.
Vision & Mission
We aim to halve the number of newly-diagnosed advanced prostate cancer cases in Malaysia, from over 60% in 2020 to 30% by 2025.
To achieve this goal, we are committed to raising national awareness about prostate cancer, enhancing the competency of our healthcare professionals, and encouraging early detection and treatment.
The Urological Cancer Trust Fund is a non-profit entity under the Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Malaya.
Set up in 2015, the Fund is committed to increasing public awareness of urological cancers particularly prostate cancer, encouraging early detection of prostate cancer, and providing financial assistance to under-privileged patients.
“With increased awareness of early detection, our men will have a better chance of surviving prostate cancer.”

“So many men suffer terribly because of this illness. I survived and I want to help others combat prostate cancer.”
Dato’ Sri Nazir Razak
