Province Of West Kent Prostate Cancer Awareness - Extended to all Kent Mark Master Masons
About one in seven men get prostate cancer. It’s the UK’s most prevalent cancer in males, with over 40,000 diagnoses every year. As men age, they can develop urinary symptoms like poor flow or getting up frequently in the night, and while most turn out to be benign prostate enlargement it can coexist with prostate cancer. So how would you recognise it and what are your chances of developing it?

Province Of West Kent Prostate Cancer Awareness - Extended to all Kent Mark Master Masons

Most men diagnosed with early prostate cancer show no symptoms, it is ‘picked up’ following a simple PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test at a routine health assessment.

Catch it early
Detecting prostate cancer early provides the opportunity for a definitive cure using minimally invasive techniques. Yes, it’s slower growing than most cancers and yes, most men will have evidence of it when they’re in their 80s but that’s no reason for complacency.

PSA Testing Conducted and Supported by The Graham Fulford Charitable Trust
The Province of West Kent has teamed up with the Graham Fulford Charitable Trust to provide private PSA testing sessions with analysis by a Consultant Urological Surgeon and written results and advice being posted direct to the patient in 7 – 10 days.

Following the success of the first PSA Testing Session on December 10th 2016 at Oakley House the Provincial Grand Master is supporting two more sessions at different Centres to provide the maximum opportunity for the Brethren to have the test.

• Tunbridge Wells on Saturday 1st April - 10.30 am to 1.00 pm.
• Dartford on Saturday 29th April - 10.30 am to 1.00 pm.

To book your place simply e-mail colinw69@sky.com stating which session you wish to attend and provide a contact number by Saturday 18th March 2017 latest.
