In 2010, over 2,100 VHI customers were treated for the disease at a total cost of almost €20.6m.
Vhi Healthcare customers account for approximately 70% of the reported almost 3,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in Ireland.
The health insurance firm is releasing the figures to mark Blue September - an awareness campaign of male specific cancer.
