What you need to know.
Talk to your GP about prostate cancer testing.
Know your risk.
Catch prostate cancer early.
Getting tested for prostate cancer is simpler than you might imagine.
A PSA blood test can determine your risk of developing prostate cancer, followed by an examination and further testing if necessary.
The risk of developing prostate cancer increases with age although men from all walks of life over 40 are diagnosed with prostate cancer every day. Men with a family history or whose heritage is African or Caribbean are most at risk.
If you have a family history of prostate cancer, you should talk to your GP about testing from age 40 onwards. Men with no history of prostate cancer in the family should talk to their GP from 50 onwards.
