Cancer Support Services has huge success for Prostate Blood Test, but still welcome Corporate Responsibility

Belmont Road recently looked like when cinemas used to have the latest kung fu movie, with a string of men waiting out on the street – but what they’re looking to beat was not Silver Fox, but to watch out for prostate cancer.

155 men decided to be proactive and came out to Cancer Support Service’s special screening, a blood test known as a PSA – Prostate Screening (of) Antigens, all for a nominal fee most agreed was the best budget.

When Bajan Reporter arrived, there were many clients waiting for their simple test even as the closing period of 2 p.m. loomed. The News Blog learned even more could be done if Barbadian businesses would step forward and assist with more donations to improve counselling techniques and acquire better medical equipment.

Meanwhile, some of the guys were brave enough to state their reasons for getting tested... Some liked the pricing of the test, while others like to keep tabs on their well being and still others had concerns since many of their family fell victim to cancer.

Mutual Archer is one of the medical professionals who assisted in getting the tests done efficiently and as quickly as possible, he noted the day was to start at 10 o’clock but men were lined up from 9:30 am, he also indicated the average agespan was 40 to 70 for patients.

Cancer Support Services will be having another PSA Screening on Saturday 16th April 2016 in conjunction with their 20th Anniversary. Their building is the orange one diagonally opposite the Public Workers Co-Op Credit Union
