Bill Turnbull joined Susanna Reid to present Monday’s edition of Good Morning Britain. One topic being discussed on the show was prostate cancer – something Bill is currently undergoing treatment for. The former BBC journalist was asked about his own PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test number and he told those watching at home how he was having a test later in the day and it would be a “heart in your mouth” moment.
“The PSA test – number – is iconic to you,” Susanna said.
“It’s very important,” Bill replied. “You’ve got to get four or less – I had 583 and got it down. But it goes up and down with treatment.
“It’s currently on 96 but it was 180 earlier, last month.
“After the show, I’m going off to the Royal Marsden Hospital and will get the latest figures then,” he continued.
“It’s [a] heart in your mouth [moment]. I just want to get it down and keep it down.”
He then urged anyone watching at home to “press your GP” for a test and “don’t take ’no’ for an answer”.
