Things We Do At Hayling Lions
Get a FREE PSA Test to see if you are developing prostate cancer...early
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men with some 30,000 diagnosis per year.
The liklihood of developing this particular condition increases as we age with the majority of cases developing in men aged 50 and over.
However the good news is that a simple blood test can help diagnose the early symptoms of this condition making treatment and recovery less invasive and stressful.
The Prostate Specific Antigen Test (P.S.A) establishes your P.S.A level and if raised, then treatment options can be considered. Treatment may not be required immediately or indeed at all.
Know your number!
Come along to the Community Centre on 10th February (10.00 am - 2.30 pm) where fully qualified medical staff will be on hand to take a quick blood sample.
The testing is free and by appointment which may be booked online via Hayling Lions Website or at www.pcaso.org/psa-testing. You can also book via the posters appearing around our island.
We look forward to seeing you.
If you (or someone you know) should get this test, then follow the instruction below:
Our Amazing Charity Shop

If you have spectacles you no longer need
Please bring them to the shop on Elm Grove.
We will take them to our partners who will clean your glasses and grade them so that they can be shared with needy people in the developing parts of the world, so that your eyeglasses can continue to provide benefit to others.
Prostate Cancer Screening
Many of you will know that we used to hold screening days at the community centre to help many men on the Island have a simple blood test to see if they were at risk from prostate cancer, which develops silently but can will develop in 1 in 8 men.
You can now get a PSA test from your GP if you are over 50 and ask for a test and just ask for the test.
We are not planning to run those sessions again.
Message in a bottle
The Lions fund these bottles in which you can place important medical information and your current prescription list, so that if an ambulance calls to help you in an emergency, they know to look in your fridge for this bottle, which can help them and the hospital doctors look after you more appropriately.
You can pick them up from our shop on Elm Grove, at the GPs and at the pharmacies.
