PSA testing in Nantwich

Leighton Hospital Prostate Cancer Support Group is to stage a PSA testing session for Nantwich men.

Nantwich Civic Hall will open from 9.30am until 12.30pm on Saturday April 14 for men to take part in PSA blood testing for early detection of prostate cancer.

No appointments needed, and it is aimed at helping raise awareness of the most common cancer in men in the UK.

The test carried out by trained phlebotomists.

They will take a small sample of blood for analysis and testing, with results being sent out 7-10 days later.

The Prostate Cancer Support Group in South Cheshire is asking for a small donation of £10 for the test to help fund their activities.

Local group organiser Kevin Hammersley said: “The support group has grown from small beginnings – in 1998 two patients met to discuss their condition, treatment and concerns – and has developed into an association of self-help and local support groups in the North of England.

“The organisation is fully managed by and for men with prostate cancer, their families and those who are interested in improving the care and support of those affected by this form of cancer.”

The group will also be inviting men tested to assist with the training of Medical Detection Dogs to ‘sniff out’ prostate cancer and provide a urine sample.
