My story is typical. No symptons until it was too late, (back, right hip and pelvis pain)
My father died of advanced prostate cancer. I had fears that my back/hip pain was due to the disease so asked for a psa test but I was 'talked out of it' with the standard "70% of people who have a raised psa dont have prostate cancer" lets wait and take these painkillers"
They even agreed to a chiropractor who did 3 sessions on my right hip trying to 'free it!"
Anyway, I am now on ProStap and the right thigh numbness I had has gone and pain is 'manageable'
I have started this petition because my consultant said it probably started around 3 years ago and migrated around 6 months ago.
I was 50 three years ago so if my GP had invoked the Prostate Cancer Risk management programme (which is issued by NICE to GP's but they can choose to do nothing about them) then I would have had the test and would now not be terminal.
Please review the petition above and sign and share if you agree.
Many thanks and I hope I can gain some strength and support from you guys.
