Prostate check

What to look for:

Finding cancer early improves your chances of successful treatment and long-term survival.

Look for:

  • lumps, sores or ulcers that don't heal
  • unusual changes in your testicles - changes in shape, consistency or lumpiness
  • coughs that don't go away or show blood, a hoarseness that hangs around
  • weight loss that can't be explained
  • moles that have changed shape, size or colour, or bleed, or an inflamed skin sore that hasn't healed
  • blood in a bowel motion
  • persistent changes in toilet habits or
  • urinary problems or changes
  • These symptoms are often related to more common, less serious health problems. However, if you notice any unusual changes, or these symptoms persist, visit your doctor.

Prostate screening

If you have no symptoms and are thinking about having a PSA test, consider the risks and benefits. You need to balance the benefit of detecting a prostate cancer early against the risk that detection and treatment may not be necessary. Treatment may affect your lifestyle including sexual function, but may also save your life.

Make your own decision about whether to be tested after discussion with your doctor. Ensure you get good quality information to make an informed decision.

Circumcision is an operation to remove the foreskin that covers the tip of the penis. The functions of the foreskin include protecting the head of the penis and contributing to sexual sensations. While recent research suggests that circumcision may bring some medical benefits, some doctors believe these are too small to justify surgery.
Circumcision is mostly performed on babies for family, religious or cultural reasons, or because some people prefer the look of a circumcised penis. 

Medical reasons for circumcision

Recent research suggests that circumcision may bring medical benefits such as:

  • A 10 times lower risk of a baby getting a urinary tract infection (UTI) in his first year of life (remembering that only one per cent of babies are at risk of a UTI, so 1,000 circumcisions are needed to prevent one UTI)
  • No risk of infants and children getting infections under the foreskin
  • Easier genital hygiene
  • Much lower risk of getting cancer of the penis (although this is a very rare condition and good genital hygiene also seems to reduce the risk. More than 10,000 circumcisions are needed to prevent one case of penile cancer)
  • A possibly lower risk of men getting sexually transmissible infections (STIs) than men who are not circumcised (although these studies have not been scientifically confirmed and safe sex practices are far more effective in preventing these infections)
