Prostate Cancer Screening Tests

Our Prostate Cancer Test is a simple and easy genetic screening test to detect the presence of faulty DNA repair genes

Since the 1990s, UK prostate cancer rates have increased by 48% in males and are projected to rise by 60% by 2035.

Most men with early prostate cancer don’t have signs or symptoms, which means the disease can progress and spread to a stage when curative treatment is not possible.

Prostate cancer is often non-aggressive, however 10-15% of men with prostate cancer develop aggressive life – threatening tumours at an early age which can be prone to spreading rapidly to an incurable stage.

A high proportion of men in the high-risk group carry faulty inherited cancer genes which affect cells’ ability to repair their DNA. Survival among men with faulty DNA repair genes is half that of men with no genetic mutations.

Test for High-Risk Aggressive Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men that can be aggressive causing premature mortality. Your individual prostate cancer risk can be very high, whether or not there is a family history of cancer. Knowing your personal cancer risk is the key to cancer prevention and longevity.

When determining genetic risk, it is possible to identify men at increased risk for prostate cancer so that they can receive timely examinations and a personal follow-up plan. By implementing precision prevention, it is possible to reduce the incidence and impact of cancer and achieve a longer life.

It’s never been simpler to understand your health and risk of cancer

Test results include:

  • Individual polygenic risk score for prostate cancer based on the high-tech analysis of 121 genetic variants associated with prostate cancer;
  • The individual risk of prostate cancer compared to the rest of the male population of your age;
  • Likelihood to get prostate cancer in 10 years and risk assessment compared to a man with average genetic risk of your age.


The test results provide answers to the following questions:

  • What is my genetic risk level of prostate cancer?
  • At what age and with what methods should I start prostate cancer screening?
