BREAKING NEWS: Plymouth Argyle are so much in pains as the miss their head coach in..

Plymouth Argyle is providing a complimentary match-day prostate cancer screening clinic for its fans in collaboration with the Chestnut Appeal charity. The clinic is scheduled to take place before the match against Ipswich Town on Saturday, March 2, as part of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Prostate cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer in men, impacting one in eight individuals during their lifetime.

Given recent data indicating that over 52,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually, resulting in 12,000 deaths each year, the initiative aims to raise awareness about the importance of early detection. Symptoms typically emerge when the prostate is large enough to impact the urethra.

The PSA testing will be conducted from 11.30 am to 2.30 pm at the Life Centre, accessible via a private entrance near Home Park Stadium on the day of the Ipswich game. This blood test measures the level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to aid in diagnosing prostate problems, including cancer.

The clinic is a tribute to one of the Chestnut Appeal’s founders, Dr. Salvo Natale, who sadly passed away last year. Plymouth Argyle secretary Zac Newton, who knew Dr. Natale, stated, “Salvo was an incredible man and a dedicated fan of the club. The idea to honor his memory and encourage fans to prioritize their health felt appropriate and something that I am sure Salvo would have supported.”

Newton emphasized the potential life-saving impact of a simple test and urged everyone to encourage their male relatives to undergo testing, highlighting the significance of early detection in the absence of noticeable symptoms for prostate cancer.
