Fund routine prostate cancer screening tests for all men over 50
The Government should provide funding to allow the NHS to offer an annual screening test for prostate cancer to all men over the age of 50 and from their local GP.
At the moment there's no screening programme for prostate cancer which could prevent men from dying from prostate cancer. In the UK 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 11,500 died from it last year. Our wives and children need us. Let us get checked with the PSA blood test without having to agree this with our doctors.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
