Lendlease have arranged a prostate blood test for their workforce and staff over the age of 40.
A finger prick blood test will check for Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), a protein made by the prostate gland. PSA levels rise as you get older and also as the prostate gets bigger.
A sample is sent away to a laboratory and results are then returned within a two week period and where necessary attendees will be asked to contact their GP to undertake further tests.
It may be able to pick up cancer before any symptoms are identified and lead to quicker treatment where required
