Cancer has accounted for 50% of all male critical illness (CI) claims with a quarter of those claims for prostate cancer this year, Aegon’s claim statistics have revealed.

In support of the Movember men’s health campaign this month, Aegon UK has shared previously unpublished figures on male cancer claims in 2014.

Aegon’s claims experience also shows a significant increase in critical illness claims for both prostate cancer (7 %) and testicular cancer (6 %) in the last year which Aegon has suggested could be down to the work of campaigns such as Movember in raising awareness of key men’s health issues.
