Prostate cancer and screening for it

There is no national screening programme for prostate cancer in the UK. This is because previous research showed that the PSA test isn’t a reliable test that can pick up prostate cancer that needs treatment. Research is going on to find a new test. Or to see if the current test is more effective if used in a different way.

If you’re over 50 and want to have a PSA test, you can ask your GP. There are possible risks to having this test that your doctor can discuss with you. They will help you make a decision about whether to have the test.
