Why is this important?
African-Caribbean men are three times more likely to get Prostate Cancer than white men in the UK. Prostate cancer rarely shows any symptoms. The only way to assess the risk of prostate cancer is by taking a blood test and having an examination of the prostate gland. If you are registered with a GP these tests can be done for you on the day.
Why Should I attend?
Assessing your risk of Prostate Cancer is quick and easy.
The prostate gland is wrapped around the tube from the bladder and is normally the size of a walnut. It gradually increases in size as men age and this can squeeze the tube from the bladder and interrupt or even stop the flow of urine. A significant number of men over the age of 50 will experience symptoms associated with enlargement of their prostate gland, also known as BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). This may lead to problems when passing urine.
