Early detection

Early detection is crucial in the fight against many cancers, and prostate and testicular cancer are no exceptions. Regular screenings can help identify these conditions in their early stages, allowing for better treatment outcomes and improved quality of life.

What will the screening involve?
Medical Questionnaire

You can complete this in advance at home using our digital system.

Private GP consultation

To review your medical and family history and discuss any related symptoms.

Prostate cancer check

Digital rectal exam: During this exam, a gloved finger is inserted into the rectum to feel the prostate gland for any abnormalities.

Testicular cancer check

Your GP will look for swelling or changes in texture and feel for any lumps or abnormalities. Regular self-examination is vital for ongoing early detection and your GP will ensure you know how to self check at home. If a lump is detected, your GP may recommend an ultrasound to examine the testicles further.

PSA blood test

This blood test measures the level of PSA, a protein produced by the prostate gland. Elevated PSA levels may indicate cancer, but other factors can also cause them, so further evaluation is usually needed.

Referrals and Scans (if required)

Depending on the outcome of your screening, we can organise further testing with Ultrasound or MRI scans. Your GP can also write to your NHS GP (with your consent) or organise private onwards referrals.

What are prostate and testicular cancer?

Prostate Cancer

This cancer affects the prostate gland, a small gland in the male reproductive system. It is the most common cancer among men after skin cancer.

Testicular Cancer

This cancer develops in the testicles, the male reproductive glands responsible for sperm production. While less common than prostate cancer, it is the most common cancer affecting young men (ages 15-35).

Why are screenings important?

Both prostate and testicular cancers often show no symptoms in their early stages. Regular screenings can help detect these cancers before they progress and cause significant health problems. Early detection allows for:

  • More treatment options: Early-stage cancers typically have a wider range of treatment options available, often with higher success rates.
  • Improved prognosis: Early intervention can significantly improve the likelihood of successful treatment and a longer lifespan.
  • Enhanced quality of life: Early detection and treatment can minimize the impact of the disease on your overall well-being.


Who should get screened?

The decision to undergo screening for prostate and testicular cancer depends on various factors, including:

Age: The risk of these cancers increases with age.

Family history: Having a family history of these cancers increases your risk.

Overall health: Underlying health conditions may influence your GP’s recommendations.

It is crucial to discuss your individual risk factors and screening options with your GP. They can advise you on the best approach based on your specific situation.

Remember: Early detection is key to successful treatment and improved outcomes for prostate and testicular cancer. By taking charge of your health and talking to your GP about screening, you can play an active role in your well-being.
