CASE STUDY – Low-Grade Prostate Cancer

Posted on Jan 11, 2019

Low-Grade Prostate Cancer What is it? Low-grade or localised prostate cancer often grows slowly or doesn’t grow at all. Patients may not need treatment but will have regular check-ups to make sure the cancer isn’t spreading quicker than expected.

James, aged 47, took out a VitalityLife Plan with Life Cover and Serious Illness Cover. In 2017, James had a discounted Vitality Healthcheck through one of Vitality’s partners which showed a high Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) level. James was referred to a Urologist who diagnosed that he had cancer. With James’s VitalityLife Plan, he was eligible for a payout on his plan before any treatment.

Without his health check through Vitality, James may not have found out about his cancer until it was too late.
