Where to access Genetic Testing for prostate cancer risk

Genetic tests for prostate cancer risk may be available in the NHS for men with a high chance of  prostate cancer due to a being at risk of a genetic mutation. If you would like to learn more ask your GP to refer you to the local NHS genetics clinic. You will usually be sent a family history questionnaire for assessment as a first step and then you may be invited for a genetic counselling appointment. The link below provides all the information about the NHS Genetic testing centres in the UK by region.

Alternatively, there are private companies who offer genetic tests for prostate cancer risk such as GeneHealthUK and Everything Genetic UK.
