PROVINCE OF WEST KENT PROSTATE CANCER AWARENESS – Nov 2018
Prevent Silent Assassin
PSA Testing Session – Wrotham Masonic Centre, 1 St Marys Rd, Wrotham, Sevenoaks TN15 7RG on Saturday 17th November 2018 between 10.30 am and 1.00 pm, click here for the poster.
NHS England has stated that 14,479 patients received treatment for urological cancer between April and July this year. A 36% increase on the same period last year! Nearly 15.000 cases in 4 months.
The rapid rise in the figures detailed above have been partly due to the publicity surrounding TV personalities Stephen Fry and Bill Turnbull who have been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. It would appear they are responding well to treatment.
Early detection is crucial – Brethren, for those of you who have not been tested in the last 12 months or more, are welcome to come for a re-test. Again bring relatives and close friends whose age qualifies them.
Our PGM has indicated he will be taking his second test at this session.
