Men in Bassetlaw are being urged to speak to their GP if they are worried about their prostate.

As part of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, men are encouraged not to ignore any symptoms and visit their GP.

Dr Vaithilingam Nanthakumar, GP at Larwood Surgery and GP at NHS Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: “In the UK, about one in eight men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. Older men and men with a family history of prostate cancer are more at risk so if you are worried about prostate cancer or other prostate problems please speak to your GP.”
