Knowledge is Power


About 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime.

Prostate cancer develops in the prostate gland, a small walnut-shaped gland in men and is most common in older men, typically diagnosed after the age of 50.

Symptoms may include difficulty urinating, blood in the urine or semen, erectile dysfunction, pain in the hips, back, or chest, and weakness or numbness in the legs or feet.

PSA Testing (Prostate Specific Antigen Test)

The PSA test measures the level of PSA in a man’s blood. PSA is a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate gland.

Elevated levels of PSA can indicate prostate cancer, but they can also be caused by other conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or inflammation of the prostate.

The American Cancer Society suggests that men at average risk should have an opportunity to make an informed decision about screening starting at age 50, while men at higher risk (such as black men or those with a family history of prostate cancer) should consider screening starting at age 45.

So a serious consideration for all men as we age past 45. PSA tests are free on the NHS from the age of 50 and through our HealthNav partnership with Medichecks. Get in contact to find out more.
