Simple test could predict your risk of cancer that can be symptomless

Prostate cancer symptoms must be acted on as soon as they arrive in a bid to arrest the growth of the tumour. 

Worryingly, symptoms can be reluctant to rear their ugly head and alert you to the condition. 

However, two thirds of men wrongly believe they’ll see signs of the disease in its early stages, according to a survey from Prostate Cancer UK. 

Chiara De Biase, from Prostate Cancer UK, told Birmingham Live: “What’s really worrying is that this misinformation could stop a man from getting the early diagnosis that could save his life.

“Men’s health can be a minefield. Everyone has gaps in their knowledge and every one of us probably believes something that just isn’t true.

“Prostate cancer doesn’t usually have any symptoms at all until it’s already spread and become incurable.”

Fortunately, an online cancer test could help predict your risk of the deadly condition in just thirty seconds.

You can check if you’re more prone to the disease with an online checker at 

All you need to do is answer three questions on the website to check your risk.

De Biase added: “Far too few men know the main factors that put them at risk. 

“That’s why we’re asking every man to take our 30-second online risk checker, to help understand their risk, and what they can do about it.”

If you’re a trans woman or non-binary, your risk may be different but the charity also provides information for trans and non-binary people.

While knowing your risk is key, symptoms awareness can also be helpful in case the signs do crop up.

According to the NHS, the key signs of prostate cancer can include:

  • Needing to pee more frequently, often during the night
  • Needing to rush to the toilet
  • Difficulty in starting to pee (hesitancy)
  • Straining or taking a long time while peeing
  • Weak flow
  • Feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully
  • Blood in urine or blood in semen.
