Stand by your man, Prostate Awareness Campaign
I had the test, routine here in France along with bowel cancer testing every two years after 50.
I’m surprised it’s only one in eight, my memory says much higher – half the men over certain age die with it but not necessarily of it. I need to Google but can’t be bothered.Posted 4 years agoDavesportSubscriber
I’m 50 & there’s a family history.
I’ve just had my PSA test done & the rubber gloved finger 👿 Choose a doctor with small digits, I just about passed out…Ohhya barsteward 😯
Everything’s fine in that dept thankfully but I was walking funny for the rest of the day.

This Sunday, Fathers day on ITV1 there is a play about Prostate Cancer, One man dies from prostate cancer every 49 minutes – more than 10,000 every year,my Dad being one of them.
More than 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year
One in eight men will get prostate cancer
Please watch it, read the website information and if worried get checked out, talk to your mates down the pub and at work,treatments are available.Posted 4 years agoDavesportSubscriber
PSA test much more accurate than digital examination. Many more men would get tested if PSA was proposed and understood as main test because of embarrassment factor.
My GP informed me thus. PSA test is accurate but can give false positives. Digital exam was advised as optional but (could be) much better at detecting early stage malignancy as tumours tend to form on the outside of the prostate first.
I don’t like that picture of Merkel 😯 Whatever you think of Silvio Berlusconi, his quote about her was correct 😀Posted 4 years ago
