When to see a GP?
It is advised that you should reach out and get checked if you have noticed any of the following symptoms:
- Needing to pee more frequently, often during the night
- Needing to rush to the toilet
- Difficulty in starting to pee (hesitancy)
- Straining or taking a long time while peeing
- Weak flow
- Feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully
- Blood in urine or semen
However most men with early prostate cancer don’t have any symptoms so it is important to know if you are at risk.
- Age – If you are over 50 years
- Family history – if you have a father or brother who has been diagnosed you are two and a half more times likely to get prostate cancer
- Ethnicity – If you are a black man, your risk may increase once you’re over 45
At the Kingsbridge Prostate Clinic you can receive immediate access to our Enhanced Private GP Service where you will receive a prostate screening test and a direct referral to see one of our specialist Urology consultants if required.
