PROSTATE CANCER

Prostate problems are common in men and Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in men. Prostate Cancer is cancer of the prostate Gland. This is where abnormal cells divide and grow in an uncontrolled way. These cells can either stay contained or they can grow into surrounding organs and tissues causing the cancer to spread.

At The Shire Clinic we specialise in the treatment of prostate problems. We ensure rapid access to a Urological Consultant to asses you and perform same-day diagnostic tests using advanced, minimally invasive techniques. Early intervention is key with Prostate cancer, which means screening and male health is vital. The Shire Clinic can help keep these in check.
