25 mile drive could be a life saver as new prostate cancer test day named

Ross Crawford 27th Jun, 2018

AFTER the success of its Prostate Cancer Awareness day at Droitwich fire station in May, the Worcester Prostate Awareness Group has arranged another testing day, this time in Malvern, this Saturday, June 30.

Malvern may be 25 miles away but the free PSA blood test on offer for men aged 45 and over could be a life saver.

It’s at Barnard’s Green Cricket Club, North End Lane, Malvern, WR14 2ET from 9.30am to 1pm.

Note this is not a walk in clinic and tests must be arranged by calling 07522 504 300.

There will be a booked time slot system, so people are advised to ring early to get an appointment.

At the Droitwich event, 249 people attended and 21 were referred to their GPs.

Prostate cancer is now the most common cancer to affect men in the United Kingdom.

In all 48,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, which is the equivalent to 25 new cases each day.

Prostate cancer, like most other forms of cancer, if diagnosed early and treated can be cured.
