King’s Mill Hospital to host prostate cancer awareness event

SHERWOOD Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is to hold an educational event on the most common form of cancer for men in the UK.

The Trust will be holding a Prostate cancer event at King’s Mill Hospital’s Education Centre Lecture Theatre on Wednesday 20th July.

The event runs between 6pm and 7.30pm, with tea and coffee available from 5.30pm, and consists of a presentation followed by a Q&A session.

Attendees will find out about the signs and symptoms for prostate cancer as well as information on diagnosis and available treatments. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions.

The event will be hosted by Consultant Urologist, Mr Krishnan Ananthakrishnan.

Mr Krishnan said: “Prostate cancer is very common amongst older men. In Britain, 34,000 new cases are identified each year and 10,000 die from the disease annually.

“It is very important for men over 50 to have an idea of what prostate cancer actually is and how to spot and stop it – so I would urge anyone in this bracket to come along to the event.”
