L&D New Prostate Cancer Biopsy Probe

In April the we hit our fundraising target for our Prostate Cancer Biopsy Probe Appeal. Since then we have purchased a very advanced piece of biopsy equipment which is already in use.

So far it has found cancerous cells in 7 out of 10 patients who would have previously gone undetected. As with all cancers early detection is the key to giving the patient the best possible course of care and treatment.

The L&D would like to thank everyone who supported this appeal, we are extremely grateful for your support which will enable us to detect prostate cancer more effectively.
