Prostate Cancer affects 1 man in 9 and the symptoms are insidious, principally alteration of the flow of urine with poor stream, hesitancy, dribbling, frequency and passing water at night. A simple PSA blood test can clarify the diagnosis. I am grateful to the Rotarians who helped spread this message in Boots Pharmacy on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK on Saturday 8th September. Particular thanks are due to David Naumann and Gill Dixon who set up the Prostate Cancer Awareness Day.
Information was given out to 174 men (of whom 19 are likely to develop the disease on average).
