PROSTATE CANCER SCREENING EVENT
Our club is passionate about helping as many as we can in our local community and it's hard to think of a better way than via our Prostate Cancer Screening Event which we hold every couple of years.
The concept is simple: we invite men to book online and come along to a local venue to have a small blood sample taken that is then sent to be PSA tested – a widely recognised test for early signs of possible Prostate problems, including Prostate Cancer.
Is there a charge?
Holding the event cost the Lions approximately £30 for each test but we don’t make a fixed charge – although we strongly encourage a donation from those taking part.
How old do I have to be to qualify for a test?
We aim the event at men from 40-75 years old.
How does it work?
We use trained Phlebotomists to take your blood and your results are analysed by experts and sent to you directly – all done in the strictest confidence: your identity and results will not be revealed to anybody but you!
What will my results tell me?
Your results will tell you if you have any issues that need to be followed up and you will be recommended what course of action to take. If nothing is flagged, we hope you will find that peace of mind.
Who funds this?
This great event is one of the ways in which we use the money that we raise through the generosity of local people. We also receive financial help from a number of local companies and organisations to stage this event.
