Fund routine prostate cancer screening tests for all men over 50

Petition Details

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.

Additional Information

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.
