Our vision

We're working to make sure no man dies from prostate cancer.

We equip expert clinicians with cutting edge technology and make them available directly to men who want testing. We focus on doing one thing exceptionally well, all to make sure no man gets told that he has been diagnosed late. We learn from data and the latest in clinical research to deliver world-class service. Having collated the largest database in the world (250,000 men and counting) we have generated some of the world’s most powerful algorithms to help us detect prostate cancer early.

Our stories

Peter
Peter 60, Police Officer, Prostate Cancer Survivor

Peter joined Maxwell Plus after an awareness session at his local police headquarters. With a family history, Peter had always kept an eye on his prostate health, however, a rising PSA was missed. This rising PSA was flagged and after an MRI that indicated the presence of a lesion, a biopsy confirmed aggressive cancer. After the surgery, the Peter has now recovered from, his surgery and is now enjoying his return to health, his retirement after a distinguished public service career. Peter is a regular advocate for Men's Health. "Early detection saved my life. I have Maxwell Plus to thank for that."

"I got tested because I want to enjoy life longer. Having a wife, two sons, a daughter and two grandkids I want to see them grow up. I have a colleague - he's 62 and his parents are still alive and healthy. I want to be like those guys parents to my kids and grandkids. I sadly never met my grandparents, I want to spend quality time with all my family. Maxwell Plus is so available, so streamlined great staff to deal with. It's so convenient why wouldn't you do it? You don't even need to leave the house to get started. I recommend getting tested to all my friends and family. I want them hanging around longer. I have known too many people in the who should have had many more years to live but didn’t get checked for unknown reasons. There is no reason why you shouldn't get checked.

I am a dad, I have a duty of care. Not only to stick around but also so my kids know what is coming their way in a few years' time. I want them to know what they need to watch out for. That being said, I also have a way of life I want to keep, I've got dreams, I've got ambitions, I've got a retirement plan. I want to keep getting on the bike a few times a week, I want to keep taking the kids down to the tennis court. Looking after my health not only is my job as a husband and father, but it keeps me doing the things I want to be doing. It is hard to find the time to take care of yourself with 12-hour shifts, but when Maxwell Plus came and talked to us - the numbers shocked me. It shocked me that more men die from prostate cancer than women die from breast cancer. What you guys have invented is brilliant, it's peace of mind so we can forget about it until we get the reminder. We can just get on with life again knowing it's fine. Seeing the next generation build these things makes me excited. My old doctor just used to jab me in the arm and say "you're good, see you later". I know you guys are doing a better job. You're specialists, you're innovating.
