For the second year running, Prince Carl Philip will be the official patron of Mustaschkampen, the Swedish Cancer Society's annual campaign to fight prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is Sweden's most common form of cancer, with around 10,000 men being diagnosed with the disease every year. Today, around 70,000 men in Sweden are suffering from or have survived prostate cancer. This is the form of cancer that kills the most men: around 2,500 each year. The Mustaschkampen campaign runs throughout May. The aim of the campaign is to fight prostate cancer by raising awareness of the disease, stimulating debate and raising money for cancer research.
