Prostate Cancer Awareness

Leighton Hospital Prostate Cancer Support Group is looking to reach out to the local LGBT+ community to raise awareness about the issue of prostate cancer. This is especially important to anyone with a prostate. As well as information for everyone, the Prostate Cancer Support Group is looking to support people with a prostate by testing as many people as they can. The test can detect early signs of prostate problems and tackle potential cancer early. Prostate problems, including Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in people with a prostate in the UK.

People who would like to test have a PSA test carried out by trained phlebotomists. They will take a small sample of blood for analysis, with results being sent out 7-10 days later. Body Positive is working with the Prostate Cancer Support Group to promote awareness in LGBT+ people and get as many people tested as possible. If you would like to test please contact Body Positive for more information about a testing event.
