Around 14,000 men could have undiagnosed prostate cancer, according to Prostate Cancer UK. Despite this, there is no official NHS screening programme in the UK and the health body is cautious about providing PSA tests.

The consultant urologist Mr. Philip Charlesworth of GenesisCare explained: “If you report any concerns to a GP they’ll often council you about the pros and cons of having a PSA blood test done.”

After Miller was given his diagnosis, he was given a choice of treatments.

“The specialist said I had three options – constant surveillance, radiotherapy, or out. I decided to have it out. Once it’s out, it’s out and so long as it’s not spread, you are good,” he said.
