Prostate cancer screening event finds people with early stages of disease

A prostate cancer screening event held in Windsor has detected 10 men with the early stages of prostate cancer.

The free event, held by Windsor Lions at the Combermere Barracks, in St Leonard's Road, in May, tested 243 men.

232 men were categorised with being normal, with 11 needing further investigation and four which needed urgent medical attention.

Event organiser Diane Purchase said:  "These results clearly show that all the effort and cost of staging this event was so worthwhile. 

"It is likely our endeavours have saved lives, at least given some a much better chance of successfully combating prostate cancer."

The analysis of the findings was conducted by consultant urological surgeon David Baxter-Smith at Wexham Park Hospital.
