PSA Testing

My PSA Tests

We are a charity funded and sponsored service which helps promote men aged 40 and over to get themselves booked onto a local PSA testing event.

Prostate cancer generally affects men over 50 and is rare in younger men. Itís the most common type of cancer in men. Around 37,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year.

It differs from most other cancers in the body, in that small areas of cancer within the prostate are very common and may stay dormant (inactive) for many years.

As it is not possible currently to hold Prostate Cancer Awareness days, Burnham Lions are working with the Graham Fulford Trust to enable men to conduct the test in the comfort of their own homes to check for early signs of possible Prostate Cancer. The kits are the same  as used by the NHS.

Itís thought that about half (50%) of all men over 50 may have cancer cells in their prostate, and 8 out of 10 (80%) men over 80 have a small area of prostate cancer. Most of these cancers grow very slowly and so, particularly in elderly men, are unlikely to cause any problems.

In a small proportion of men, prostate cancer can grow more quickly and in some cases may spread to other parts of the body, particularly the bones.
