We are always seeking ways to raise awarensss of the risks of prostate cancer among men of all ages.
We strongly support the National Federation of Prostate Cancer Support Groups (aka Tackle Prostate Cancer) in its campaign to encourage men to know their PSA, or "Get a score on the board".
Men who are at greater risk of prostate cancer are the most likely to benefit, for example, if you are an African Caribbean man you are three times more likely to develop prostate cancer than white men in the UK. If you have a family history of the disease, that is if your father or brother have had prostate cancer, you should also thing about being tested. You can talk to your GP about having regular PSA tests as it may be useful to "Get a score on the board" so that any changes can be tracked. There is no screening prgramme in the UK, but all men over 50 are entitled to a PSA test on request.
