Have you discussed having a PSA test with your GP? Prostate Cancer UK want you to share your experience. GPs should discuss the pros and cons of a PSA test with men who ask about it. However, men give mixed reports about the PSA test conversation they have with their GP: Some men say it helped them to make an informed choice about whether a PSA test was right for them or not; others say that they were put off having a test or were denied a test after requesting one. Would you like to share your story to help build a picture of access to PSA testing across the country?
