NHS Prostate Cancer Screening?

Thursday 13th

Isn't it about time that we had a screening programme for prostate cancer?

Thanks to breast cancer screening for women thousands of lives are saved every year. An effective programme for prosate cancer scanning for men is bound to save thousands of mens lives more. 

I went to the doctor about an unrelated matter and with no symptoms directly associated with prostate cancer, and was 'lucky' to be diagnosed with stage 3 prostate cancer... lucky in the sense that it wasn't stage 4!!! Not so lucky that it wasn't spotted earlier. I'm now 18 months down the road from having chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and for the rest of my life I have to take medicines with horrific side effects. 

Surely routine blood testing would be a good idea for men over forty. The thing is, the simple PSA blood test isn't reliable, producing false positives... but so what, I for one would have been very happy to have a prostate exam, or even a scan or biopsoy to prove it one way or the other, particularly if they had discovered my tumour at stage 1 or 2. 

Can I suggest that you do your own screening... if you're an over forties male go to the doctor and ask for a PSA test. If it comes back with bad news then man up and get the tests done... it may be a false positive, but even if it really is bad news then you still may live to be a grumpy old man. 

Unlike me. 




I'm Riding for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Friday 23rd

I’m sure most of you know that I have prostate cancer. I’ve been through the treatment wringer and I’m alive and kicking a year and a bit after chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I know this may be a disappointment for some of you, but rest assured it will kill me eventually. Maybe it will kill you too! 

My (stage 3) prostate cancer was discovered when I went to the GP with another unrelated problem - I had NO SYMPTOMS! 

Prostate cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women in 2021 thanks to the NHS breast cancer screening programme. Isn’t it about time men got a prostate cancer screening in the same way? 

I’m not really bothered if you donate or not, but at the very least if you’re an over forties male I strongly urge you to get yourself checked out by your GP before you find yourself looking down the barrel of a shortened life span and living with the big C. Do it today. Do it now! 

On Sunday the 23rd of May, I'm riding in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.

Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I'm asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
