King Charles’ announcement causes explosion of searches for ‘how to check prostate’ by 1,093%

Buckingham Palace announced on Monday, 5th of February, that 75-year-old King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer and is already receiving treatment. The news came after the announcement on Wednesday, 18th of January, that King Charles required treatment for an enlarged prostate. Buckingham Palace has revealed no further details about what type of cancer King Charles has at this stage but has stated that it is not prostate cancer and is remaining wholly positive about his treatment.

The King’s cancer ‘caught early’ announcement has caused a surge in Google searches for prostate checks worldwide.

The analysis, by skincare experts at Supplement Doctor, reveals that searches for ‘check for prostate cancer’ and ‘how to check prostate’ exploded by 1,073% and 1,093% worldwide in the last seven days after King Charles’ announcement. It is understood that The King was keen to reveal his prostate check to encourage others to get checked also.

Worldwide searches for ‘symptoms of prostate cancer’ have also soared by 712% in the past seven days at the same time, as well as searches for ‘healthy prostate’ exploded by over 242%, an unprecedented volume of Google searches for the health issue.

The announcement has also encouraged searches for ‘prostate exam’ and ‘prostate exam age’, which have skyrocketed by 508% and 434% in the past seven days worldwide.

A spokesperson at Supplement Doctor commented on the findings:

“Prostate treatment is not uncommon for men; however, it is unusual for The King to announce such personal news. It is positive to see that interest in prostate checks has jumped after King Charles has spoken up. While The King’s influence spans across the globe, this is a fantastic impact if it can encourage men to attend a check-up.

It’s important to contact your GP if you have any concerns or worries regarding a prostate check or if you have any unusual urinary symptoms.”
