Blood test event for men that could help save lives

The IW Prostate Cancer Support Group with the Ryde Lions in partnership, recently organised their third PSA blood test event for men on the Isle of Wight aged 45 years and older.

Altogether 400 men had blood taken by five phlebotomists from St Mary’s Hospital and of these men 40 have elevated PSA results, needing some sort of medical follow up. This early intervention will allow early treatment and an enhanced possibility of success for these men to make a good recovery. The group thanked everybody involved in organising and staging the event.
