Prostate cancer prevention
It is recommended that men aged 50 and over with no family history of prostate cancer, and men at 40 with a family history, should have a prostate check performed by their doctors on an annual basis. This is done in the form of a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test.
During your next visit, feel free to ask your doctor about when you had your last prostate check. Your doctor will inform you about whether or not you require further testing.
Men’s Health Assessments
For men aged 40-49 years (inclusive), the doctors may recommend you undergo a health assessment if they believe you are at risk of developing a chronic disease. Chronic disease is defined as conditions which have been present or is likely to be present for at least 6 months such as asthma, diabetes mellitus or arthritis. Alternatively, if you have family history of chronic illness that we do not know about or other concerns, please discuss the possibility of an assessment with your doctor.
In most cases, you will need to consult with the doctor prior to making a booking. Examples of minor procedures include removal of a foreign body from the skin, and Implanon insertions and removals. After the initial consultation, the doctor will direct you to make an appointment with reception staff.
