Prostate Cancer Concerns

Prostate cancer is one of those things that many men put off having checked out. If you are concerned about your family history or if you have concerns about the risk of developing prostate cancer Mr Glackin can discuss with you the pros and cons of investigation for this common disease.
The initial step is to understand your concerns, your general health, your lifestyle and your outlook on life. Examination of the prostate and a simple blood test, prostate specific antigen (PSA), will help guide the investigation process. You may require an ultrasound scan to check prostate size and bladder emptying. An MRI scan of the prostate may be needed to assess for abnormality before considering a biopsy of the prostate under local anaesthetic.
