Prostates, PSA’s and peeing problems - in support of Blue September

September 24, 2019

Dr Andrew Williams (consultant urologist) together with Dr Remy Lim (consultant radiologist), will discuss new trends in prostate cancer investigation and management, what are the recommendations for PSA testing and who should be referred for further investigation.

They will cover different imaging modalities for the prostate and touch on new treatments available. A standard approach for investigating and managing bladder pain and recurrent UTI’s will also be discussed during the webinar, as well as a summary of red flags and indications for referral for these conditions.

Throughout this live online event, you will have the opportunity to type questions to Andrew and Remy via the onscreen text system. Please note that the webinar may run slightly over time so as many of your questions as possible can be answered.

This webinar was made in collaboration with Mercy Radiology, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Goodfellow Unit. The original webnar page can be found here
