MAC gives series of PSA presentations to retired men

The Irish prostate patients’ organisation Men Against Cancer (MAC) is running an extensive series of presentations to retired men, calling on them to advise their sons to have a PSA test if over 45 and earlier if prostate cancer runs in the family.

MAC has developed a slide presentation highlighting the new recommendations for organised screening for prostate cancer and is showing this to Probus Clubs of retired and semi-retired people.

The presentation also deals with the possible prostate cancer risks if female family members have had the BRCA breast cancer mutations. Open question-times are often followed up by one-on-one peer to peer discussions.
