Free prostate health blood tests return to Randox Health for Movember
Following successful initiatives in both 2017 and 2018, we are pleased to announce that Randox Health will once again be offering free prostate health blood tests during the month of November.
The free health check tests for Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) to provide an overall profile of your prostate health.
The PSA blood testing can be booked in Randox Health’s clinics in London, Liverpool, Holywood and Crumlin, offers a pre-cursor to a physical examination, and can stratify clients who may need further investigation.
Dr. Peter FitzGerald, Founder and Managing Director, Randox Health, commented;
“Prevention is better than cure, and it is so easy to get information about your prostate health which could ultimately save and extend your life.
“Prostate cancer is the most common cause of cancer in men across the UK, however if it is detected early enough, the outlook for patients is extremely positive. If caught at stage 1, almost everyone will survive their cancer for 5 years or more, but if caught at stage 4, this reduces to just a 30% survival rate.
“It is unsurprising therefore that we want to get the word out there as much as we can about the free prostate health tests we are offering, so that as many men as possible can take advantage of this unique opportunity in our clinics in London, Liverpool, Holywood and Crumlin.”
Appointments are made by booking only by directly phoning your nearest Randox Health clinic: Randox Health Holywood 028 95622300 / Randox Health Crumlin 028 94477498 / Randox Health London 020 30112970 / Randox Health Liverpool: 0151 665 0700. Each booking includes complimentary body composition analysis and a phonecall with a Scientific Consultant to discuss your results.*
*Please note that there are no specific blood tests for cancer. PSA is not a diagnostic for prostate cancer, but rather, for overall prostate health.
A high PSA result may suggest prostate cancer but other causes include an enlarged prostate, prostatitis, exercise, urinary tract infection, recent sex or ejaculation, recent prostate examination, recent prostate surgery, a urinary catheter, or some medications.
Randox Health may suggest repeat testing, prostate examination or referral to a urologist for further investigation.
