New test claims to be twice as reliable as detecting cancer

CHEAP AND QUICK: New test could mean end to embarrassing examinations.

A NEW urine test for prostate cancer could soon be available in GP surgeries.

Studies show the cancer test to be twice as reliable as the existing blood test for detecting the disease, which is the most common cancer among British men. It can also tell doctors how serious the cancer is meaning it could not only save lives but prevent the need for embarrassing rectal examinations and unnecessary tests.

The test has been created by Surrey University in the UK which hopes it will be in surgeries later this year costing as little as £10 (€12) per test before it could be available on the NHS and across Europe.
