PSA Testing Day: The Petersfield Lions Club, in conjunction with the Prostate Cancer Support Organisation (PCaSO), are holding a PSA BLOOD TEST EVENT at Winton House, 18 High Street, Petersfield on Saturday 2nd March between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. The PSA test (Prostate-Specific Antigen) detects a substance released by the prostate gland into the blood stream. It is the most common initial test in the UK for men worried about prostate cancer.

The event will include a reception, registration and a video presentation. A small blood sample is taken from a vein in the arm by a trained phlebotomist and sent to a laboratory for testing. Participants will be notified of the results within 10-14 day, using a ‘traffic-light’ red-amber-green system. A red or amber result in the PSA test does not necessarily indicate the presence of Prostate Cancer, but in these cases the subject is advised to consult their GP.

  • To make an appointment, telephone 07565 058 923.

You will be asked a few questions and offered a timed appointment. This test is completely free of charge, however donations are welcome to help cover testing costs.
