first_imgLocalNews Men encouraged to have their prostate tested by: – March 30, 2012 Share Share Tweet 18 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring! Share Patrick HendersonMen are being asked to turn out in large numbers on Saturday to have their prostates tested.Free prostate screening will be undertaken at the Clinical Facility of Portsmouth Genera Hospital commencing at 8:30 am, targeting residents of the North.One member of the Dominica Cancer Society Patrick Henderson noted that too often men shy away from taking care of their medical health.“While women go check on their health, men have the tendency to put it off until it’s too late. What we want them to do is go get their exam and if everything is okay that’s fine but if it’s not then they need to be referred to their doctors,” he said.He said the examination takes a few seconds because “one of the fears men have is that they don’t like the nature of it however some men who have gone through that explained to us that it wasn’t so bad,” he said.He said the prostate status can change hence the reason why men should have regular checkups.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
