Prostate cancer awareness and PSA test event

Saturday 12 May 2018

Our aim is to make the local community aware of the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer and to offer free prostate PSA screening blood tests.

We invite all local men over 45 or those who are younger and have a family history of prostate cancer to come along to the Circle Hospital Reading on Saturday 12 May 2018 to learn more about prostate cancer and take a PSA blood test.

Why test men?

With one man every hour dying from prostate cancer and 40,000 new cases every year the Lions Club of Reading and Circle Hospital Reading aim to provide a free PSA blood test to as many men over 45 as possible who chose to take the test. It’s well proven that early detection and treatment may vastly increase your chances of survival.

Who?

All men over the age of 45 and men over 40 who have a family history of prostate cancer. We would like you to pass the word to family, friends and work colleagues. Our aim is to reach as many men in the Reading area as we can.

How long does the test take?

Please allow 30 to 45 minutes for registration and the test although this may take longer at busy times. Please bring your completed consent form.

If you have suffered flu-like symptoms, diarrhoea, or vomiting within 48 hours prior to your visit, we ask you not to attend this event in order to reduce the risk of transmission to others.
