Prostate Cancer Awareness Highlighted

Prostate 1

Prostate cancer victim Graham Willetts is putting his energies into helping other Dorset sufferers as well as fighting his own disease.

Macmillan Cancer Support have made March Prostate Cancer awareness month, and Graham's leading the message to get checked out.

He now advises fellow sufferers at Dorset Macmillan Cancer Advocacy in Dorchester.

Graham, who was diagnosed in his 50's , says anyone with symptoms of excess passing of urine, especially at night, not being able to go, or if you're finding it painful to relieve to go to the toilet, needs to see a doctor to be checked out.

'There's a simple  blood test now which gives a good indication of whether you need more medical help', he told Wessex FM.

Those with symptoms are being asked not to worry about any embarrasment because your GP will be very used to such enquiries.

'I put it down to natural ageing', he said 'But don't wait..get checked out. Its far easier to treat with a more successful outcome if you're diagnosed early, than if you wait till the symptoms are bad.'
