We know you all want to shove AI where the sun doesn't shine. And that's exactly where it's going – detecting prostate cancer

Inde a blood test, and of most use if repeated to see if anything has changed, not just done as a one off.

Though I had to hassle my GP for one, even though I'm of an age where they should be offering these as part and parcel of routine periodic checks for things likely to crop up at some point.

Screening is a bit sub par for a lot of conditions in the UK (hence so much cancer gets late diagnosed in UK - relative of mine probably died from prostate cancer, diagnosed late and surgery performe but he died not long after from cancer elsewhere, could be coincidence but hospital reckoned most likely metastasis from the original PC )
