PROSTATE SCREENING

 Prostate cancer logo


 Did you know that one in eight men will get prostate cancer? Well, it can be cured if caught early enough.

 SO DON'T PUT YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND GET TESTED!

Whilst the test is not absolutely definitive it can provide an early warning of prostate cancer that is still at a curable stage but without displaying any symptoms..

This year's event will take place on Saturday 2nd September 2023 at Shirley Methodist Centre, Stratford Road, Shirley, Solihull, B90 3AL from 9.30 am to 1.00 pm and to book an appointment please click here

 Saturday 25th June 2022 saw us hold our third annual Prostate Awareness event. Blood tests were taken on just over 200 men to check their PSA (prostate specific antigen). From these tests we were advised that 8 men received a "red" warning meaning that they needed immediate follow up and a further 14 received an "amber" warning meaning they need to be checked on a regular basis. Thankfully everyone else received the "green O K" Those 22 red and amber warnings make the whole event so worthwhile,
