Professor Richard Hindley, Clinical Advisor for Prostate Cancer

The evidence to support the use of routine PSA testing is stronger than ever. PSACheck enables men to have the test performed and provides all the necessary support and guidance should the test flag anything of concern. An early PSA test as a ‘marker in the sand’ is very useful and can be used for future comparison and improves hugely the utility of this simple and inexpensive test.

Frequently Asked Questions

Age restrictions

Check4Cancer’s cancer screening services are clinically governed by age restrictions, and you cannot sign up for a service if you are not within the age range for a particular cancer screening test. This is because clinical research does not support the benefits of screening people outside our specified age ranges.

Regardless of age, if you have symptoms then you should always seek medical advice from your GP.

Why should I have a PSACheck?

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men across the UK with more than 47,700 men diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. This means that 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. Men with prostate cancer often have no symptoms unless the disease is detected at a late stage. There is currently no national NHS screening programme for prostate cancer, so screening is vital in protecting your health and early detection of prostate cancer could save your life!

Nearly half of all men are expected to develop prostate cancer at some point in their life. The chances of survival are extremely high in those that are diagnosed when there are no symptoms and when the disease is confined to the prostate gland.

Prostate cancer mainly affects men over the age of 50 years and your risk increases with age. Black males are more likely to get prostate cancer and maybe diagnosed at a younger age.

Important information you need to be aware of before you take your PSACheck test

When you receive your PSACheck test kit, it is very important to follow the guidelines below otherwise your test results may not be accurate:

  1. No ejaculation or strenuous exercise up to 48 hours before taking your sample.
  2. Please do not ride a bicycle on the day that you take your sample.
  3. Please do not eat oily or rich food on the day that you take your sample.
  4. Please drink plenty of fluid in the hours up to the time that you take your sample.
Guidance on taking the PSACheck test if you have a urinary tract infection

If you are currently being treated for a urinary tract infection, then you must wait until the infection is cleared from your system.  We then advise you should only take your PSA test 6 weeks after the date of when the infection is cleared.

What do I do with the PSACheck kit when I have completed it?
  • Complete the at-home test by following the simple instructions provided in the test kit.
  • Return your sample to our laboratory by Freepost and expect your results within one week of the laboratory receiving your sample. 
  • Our team of specialists will analyse your PSA test results and provide a personalised screening programme. 
What happens if my test results are abnormal?
  • If your test is abnormal, we will call you before sending your results letter. 
  • Remember, a raised PSA level does not always mean that you have prostate cancer, however, raised levels do need to be investigated.
  • Should you have an abnormal test result, you may be eligible for referral to a private consultant or to the NHS via your GP.

Whilst undergoing prostate cancer screening will not prevent prostate cancer, it can help to detect cancers at an early stage so you can get treatment early. 

No prostate cancer screening test can be guaranteed to be 100% accurate, and an abnormal result from PSACheck will mean that further investigations are likely to be recommended.
