Remember …… if prostate cancer is in your family, or you’re in a high risk genetic group, get tested from 45, If not, over 50 every few years.
PSA = prostate specific antigen, and it’s measured by a blood test.
This is not a test for cancer, however, it looks at the health of your prostate gland. Higher the PSA, the more likely you’ll need further investigations.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. Similar figures to breast cancer in women.
1 in 8 men will get it.
1 in 4 men if it’s in your family or you are African Caribbean.
Early diagnosis is key.
