Rod Stewart urged Scots to get tested for prostate cancer with a cheeky message outside a clinic.
The 76-year-old rocker posted a video of himself outside the Harley Street Clinic in London on his Instagram story yesterday.

He told fans to take their PSA test as soon as possible while noting his own two-and-a-half-year battle with cancer.

Speaking on social media, the legendary crooner said: “I just want to let you know that this is a very dangerous disease – I have had it and there are no symptoms.

“Get your PSA as soon as possible. All the symptoms go to the doctors. One in the ass, no harm – come on guys.

Rod was given the green light for prostate cancer 2019 after undergoing a series of intense treatments.

Speaking at a fundraising event at the time, singer Maggie May said he was able to beat cancer because he “caught it early.”

His partner Penny Lancaster broke down in tears as she described the treatment he had undergone before being given the green light.

Appearing on Loose Women two years ago, Penny said Rod had intensive radiation therapy every day for three months.

Penny explained that Rod had a few symptoms and moved quickly to see a specialist, who found a lump that couldn’t be ignored.

She said, “It was pretty aggressive. It came very quickly. With Rod, it was aggressive. It left the gland and went to the outer tissues.

“So that was another scary time where we had to have more invasive tests and scans to see if it was elsewhere in his body, which was the scariest test of all. But it hadn’t disappeared.

“It’s moving. We have been silent for two and a half years now. The good news is, we figured it out pretty early on. “

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with over 40,000 new cases diagnosed each year.

Cancer usually grows slowly, so there may be no signs that someone will have it for many years.

NHS Scotland says symptoms don’t become apparent until the prostate is large enough to affect the urethra – which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis.

This can lead to an increased need to urinate, tension during urination, and a feeling that your bladder has not completely emptied.

Anyone who thinks they have symptoms are urged to check with their GP.
