Prostate Cancer UK is calling on men to speak to their GPs in the run up to Father's Day after it revealed that four out of five men were at higher than average risk of prostate cancer are unaware of the danger. Chief executive Owen Sharp said:
The inaccuracy of the current diagnostic process and its inability to distinguish between aggressive and non aggressive forms of the disease means that GPs face an ongoing challenge in deciding whether or not a man should be tested.
There’s a desperate need for a simple and effective tool with which GPs can assess a man’s overall risk to guide whether he should undergo further tests.
