Prostate Cancer PSA Testing in Newport
what's happening on the day
Gnosall & Newport Lions Club Prostate Cancer Awareness Event
Gnosall & Newport Lions Club and Julie Rich will be holding their 2019 Prostate Cancer Awareness Event from 6.30pm to 9.00pm on the evening of Monday 14th October at the Cosy Hall in Newport where men over 50 are invited to receive a free PSA test.
The PSA test is a blood test to help detect prostate cancer. PSA is a protein made only by the prostate gland. Some of it leaks into your blood, but how much depends on your age and the health of your prostate.
The tests are free but donations are very welcome on the evening as each test costs £15 to process. On the night a proforma is completed by each man, then a blood sample is taken by a professional phlebotomist.
