MORE than 100 men were tested for signs of prostate cancer through a free session put on by a Rotary group.

The second prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening took place for men over the age of 50, and was organised by The Rotary Club of Cosham, with help from the Rotary Clubs of Waterlooville, Havant and Portsmouth and Southsea.

It was carried out in association with support group Pcaso, which helps men that are suffering from the cancer.

PSA screening is not available on the NHS as it can give too many false positives.

Free tests were carried out at the Church Hall of the Church of the Resurrection in Drayton, where more than 100 men were tested.

Of those tested, 11 per cent were classed as being in the red category, and were advised to see their GP.
