A Shropshire couple are calling for the NHS to do routine testing for prostate cancer.
Harold Taylor from Coalbrookdale is having treatment for the illness, but only after going to a screening event organised by the Ironbridge and Severn Gorge Lions Club earlier this year.
Men over 50 can currently ask their GPs for a test, but there is no routine screening programme.
Public Health England recommends that national screening should not be introduced as PSA tests are unreliable and can suggest prostate cancer when no cancer exists and at the same time miss genuine cancers.
Harold's wife Jackie, who recently lost her brother to prostate cancer, has written to the prime minster calling for a change in the screening process.
It was passed on to the health secretary. It said [the reply] there's lots of againsts and that there are no plans for testing in the near future. I just replied 'I disagree with everything you have said'."
