Worried about your prostate?

Prostate cancer is a worry for a lot of men, the good news is that prostate cancer is rare compared to benign prostatic hypertrophy (age-related swelling of the prostate).

If you feel you have new urinary symptoms (poor stream, frequency or urgency) , it is a good idea to check with your GP about whether these should be investigated or not. The PSA test is one thing your GP may consider, but it is not appropriate for everyone. Visit the website for more information.


Self-examination of your testicles

It is important that men regularly self-examine their testicle for any new lumps or bumps. For some advice about how best to do this, view the Change Cancer booklet.
