Prostate cancer is cancer of the prostate in men. It is the most common form of cancer in men in the UK. Prostate cancer develops slowly, and causes the prostate to enlarge. A sufferer usually experiences symptoms when the prostate is large enough to affect the urethra – a tube that carries urine out of the bladder and through the penis. Common symptoms of prostate cancer include a frequent urge to urinate, straining during urination, and a feeling that the bladder hasn't properly emptied. The exact cause of prostate cancer is unknown, but men have more chance of developing the condition when they get older (over the age of 50). Men who have prostate cancer in their family history (i.e. a parent who suffered with it), are more likely to develop the condition themselves.
Treatment options for prostate cancer include removing the prostate, radiotherapy and hormone therapy. Many treatments have side effects such as incontinence and erectile dysfunction. New treatments such as high-intensity focused ultrasound and cryotherapy aim to reduce such side effects.
There is a mistaken belief that those who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer are not eligible for any life insurance cover. This is untrue – iLL can help you find a sympathetic and understanding insurer for your needs.
Whether you have recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, or have recently recovered from prostate cancer, the last thing you want to worry about is whether you are able to obtain life insurance cover. As prostate cancer is a cancerous condition, some insurers will be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for prostate cancer life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If you have received treatment for prostate cancer that has proved unsuccessful, or you have suffered from other health complications or your cancer has spread, it can be more difficult to find an insurer that meets your needs.
Using iLL's simple comparison tool, you can find the right insurer for your personal circumstances. The prostate cancer life insurance market is changing, and there are more policies available for those suffering with prostate cancer due to improvements in medical treatments to treat and keep the condition under control.
If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you should expect to pay higher premiums than a person with no health conditions at all. How high these premiums are will depend on the severity of your cancer and whether you are in remission. If you have previously had prostate cancer but have been successfully treated for the condition and are in remission, you may even be accepted for cover on standard terms. Your premiums will always be based on the level of risk you pose to an insurer, the staging of your cancer, and your current state of health.
Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLL's comparison service is the best way to find the right impaired prostate cancer life insurance specialist.
You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if your condition and cancer grading is severe, your cancer has spread and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.

A critical illness policy pays out when you are diagnosed with a critical illness. It is very likely that if you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer that you will have exclusions placed on your policy in relation to cancer. These exclusions may be in place for a set amount of time until you have been in remission or recovered for several years. An insurer is likely to want details from your GP to determine the severity of your condition, including the grading of your prostate cancer, treatments you received and whether they were successful, and when your treatment ended. If you have had a low grading prostate cancer, and have been given the all-clear for some time, you may be accepted for standard cover.
