Fosroc Wellness Committee raises awareness of Prostate Cancer

In early May, Fosroc UK staff gathered both in person at Tamworth Head Office and online for an informative talk to raise awareness of prostate cancer, arranged by the Fosroc UK & Ireland Wellness Committee. Speaking during this meeting was David James from Prostate Cancer Research (Head of Patient Projects) who highlighted the importance of checking for symptoms including:

  • an increased need to pee
  • straining while you pee
  • a feeling that your bladder has not fully emptied

He also discussed risk factors for Prostate cancer such as being over 50 years old, having a family history of prostate cancer and being of black ethnicity.

We were also joined by Derek, a previous Fosroc employee who was recently diagnosed with Prostate cancer and had undergone surgery to have it removed. Derek delivered a compelling talk sharing his story from his first appointment with his doctor all the way up until present day, where he is thankfully back to his original self, in remission and back to enjoying his retirement. It is highly advised that all men and transgender woman with any of the above symptoms, or risk factors request a PSA test (prostate specific antigen test) from their GP. The PSA test is a simple blood test that checks the levels of the prostate specific antigen in your blood to detect any enlargements or abnormalities.
