Provincial Grand Lodge of Suffolk - Prostate Cancer Screening Initiative

As we get excited for life getting back to some sort of normality, we have challenges ahead. The latest NHS data shows that since March 2020 urgent referrals for suspected prostate cancer by GPs in England have dropped by a staggering 52,000 - largely due to fewer consultations between men and their GPs during this time. As a result, more than 8,000 fewer men started treatment for this cancer in 2020 than in the previous year. Many of these 'missing men' could have life-threatening cancer without knowing it and could end up being diagnosed when it is too late for them to be cured.

Don't be a 'missing man' book your Prostate test from the dates advertised below - and do it now!
