November is a month where we can globally raise awareness for all aspects of men’s physical and mental health. Prevention is better than cure, and we want you to take control of your own health and take action early to extend your life.
Men, we are with you
1 in 8 men in the U.K. will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and some are more at risk than others. If you’re over 50, or men in your family have been diagnosed, you could be at higher risk.
Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men in the U.K., with around 52,300 men diagnosed each year according to Cancer Research UK. The number of people diagnosed has increased over the last 10 years, mainly due to the population demographic getting older.
Common issues men can experience with poor prostate health include:
- Difficulty urinating – can be painful/burning
- Blood in urine or semen
- Difficulty in having an erection
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a protein made only by the prostate gland. A PSA test is a blood test to help detect prostate cancer or abnormality within the prostate. According to the NHS, a raised PSA could indicate prostate cancer, an enlarged prostate, inflammation, or a urinary tract infection.
We Test PSA
Here at Randox Health, we are introducing our new standalone PSA test. The test will normally cost £45, however during the month of November we are offering a 50% discount with the code NOVEMBER22. This test examines the concentration of Total Prostate Specific Antigen (TPSA) in your blood via a blood draw.

Why not get Fully Checked
A Randox Health Everyman full body health check includes a PSA test, alongside 150 data points linked to your overall health including heart, muscle, nutritional health and more. Test results will identify if your PSA is at an optimal or excessive level, and includes a follow up consultation to review your results and next steps to improve your health. The comprehensive health test also provides repeat testing to track changes to help you to protect your future health.
*Please note PSA is not a diagnostic test for prostate cancer, but rather, for overall prostate health.
