I tested positive for the BRCA-2 gene – and that’s why my prostate cancer was diagnosed

Prostate cancer affects nearly 3,900 men in Ireland each year – that’s one in seven men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. But while these numbers are alarming, it is a highly treatable form of cancer, especially when caught early.

Such was the case for Martin O’Sullivan, who was diagnosed with the disease in 2018 after a routine appointment with his GP to check his PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels. “Four years ago I went for my PSA test and as I had recently tested positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation (he was tested due to a family connection) the doctor decided it would be better to get things checked – well I was referred to the Rapid Access Clinic,” he says.
