Prostate Screen Australia Media Release Februray 2013: The Valentine’s Gift of Life
Prostate Screen Australia has come out this Valentine’s Day with a great suggestion for a gift for the man in your life – booking them in for a health check.
Prostate Screen Australia is a specialist clinic based in Brisbane who utilise the latest advanced computer modelling, combined with established medical testing to assess a patient’s risk of prostate cancer; aiding in the early and accurate diagnosis of the disease.
PCFA advocates for early detection as being key to enabling better outcomes and potential cure of prostate cancer. Accordingly, PCFA recommends that men at 50 with no family history of prostate cancer, and men at 40 with a family history, should talk to their doctor about testing for prostate cancer in the form of a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test together with a Digital Rectal Examination (DRE) as part of their annual health check. It can be life threatening to wait for symptoms before seeking assessment.
