Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in men.

It accounts for the second highest cancer death rate in the United Kingdom. The main risk factor that increases your likelihood of developing this type of cancer is your age.

The symptoms linked with prostate cancer vary and are quite unspecific, but they can include:

  • An urgency to pass urine and an increased frequency of passing urine
  • Passing urine more often especially during the night
  • Difficulty when passing urine
  • Rarely, there can be blood in your semen or urine

Prostate screening services at your IPSA Medical Clinic

If you have a family history of prostate cancer or you are above 40 or you are currently experiencing any of the symptoms that are listed above, then we recommend to you a prostate check up at your IPSA Medical Clinic.

Our prostate screening services include a full consultation regarding your prostate health, discuss any symptoms that you might have and any of the relevant risk factors. We conduct an examination in our conducive and confidential professional clinic setting, run a blood test to detect prostate specific antigen (PSA), an ultrasound or a biopsy (if there are any clinical signs) and a further referral to IPSA Medical’s specialist in urology if needed.

The prostate specific antigen test at your IPSA Medical Clinic: It is better to know

A prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test is a good indicator of prostate inflammation. You should consider having a baseline PSA test once you are over 40 and especially if there is any history of prostate cancer in your family.
