How do I declare my condition?
To declare your pre-existing medical condition, simply enter your travel details in the search bar at the top of this page. You'll then be taken through to our medican screening process. Be as open and honest as possible with the information you provide. Rest assured, your information will be handled with the utmost care and confidentiality.
Here are a few examples of the questions you may be asked:
- Has the cancer ever spread from the prostate to other parts of the body?
- Excluding hormone therapy, are you currently having or awaiting any cancer treatment?
- Have you been offered any cancer treatment but chosen not to proceed?
- How many unplanned hospital admissions have you had for this condition within the last 2 years?
- Are you taking strong painkillers every day for this condition?
Travelling with prostate cancer
Speak to your doctor or cancer specialist
Your doctor can give you advice on the types of climates that may affect your condition, the treatment and care options available abroad, and whether any compulsory vaccinations will affect your medication.
Do your research
Official cancer websites such as the NHS and Cancer Research UK have a wealth of regulated, up-to-date messages. Prostate Cancer UK also have a useful Travel and Prostate Cancer fact sheet, outlining everything from preparing for your trip, buying travel insurance and what to be mindful of when away.
Pack more than enough medication
It's recommended that you carry a certain excess of medication on your trip, should you be taking any at the time of travelling. This eliminates any potential problems that may occur trying to secure a prescription abroad, or should you misplace your medication. It may also be worth reading up about the process of securing medication in your chosen destination, as a failsafe.
Arrange Airline special assistance
Get in contact with the airline as soon as possible to notify them of any special arrangements you might need such as wheelchair access, special meals or seating close to the toilet.
Carry your medical advice card
If you have had brachytherapy, the implanted radioactive seeds could set off the airport security sensors, so make sure you have your medical advice card to hand, to avoid any potential delays.
Translate important medical documents
In countries where English is not widely spoken, it is wise to carry translated copies of your condition and treatment details along with the information on the medicines you take, in case you need to see a doctor whilst on holiday.
