There are no early warning symptoms for prostrate cancer.  That is why screening and knowledge is so important.  Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK.  Find out about screening and symptoms so you stay well.  Ask a GP about men’s health issues.

Time: 12pm – 2pm
Venue: Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre, 76 Braybrook St, London W12 0AP
