Providing extensive support
The Isle of Wight Prostate Cancer Support Group provide extensive support to those diagnosed with prostate cancer. They also support regular PSA blood test events on the Isle of Wight for men aged 45 years and over.
Recent successful events have been held at the Masonic Centres in Ryde and Cowes and further events are planned.
Enhancing success rates for recovery
These large scale testing events have resulted in early detection and treatment of a significant number of men with the condition, greatly enhancing the success rates of treatment and in making a good recovery.
