Hello?

Hi, I'm not sure where you've gone but to check for prostate, this is done by a prostate exam, and blood tests called PSA to make sure its nothing serious.
You might also need a prostate ultrasound to confirm size of prostate. Your GP can arrange these tests.

but in your opinion does it sound important to do so , is it a high or low risk Do you think. …? I don’t want to worry the family unecessarily.
Thanks for you help , appreciated . That’s all I need to know .

I think it's always important it get things checked if there's an issue you've not had before.
Low risk or high risk will only be known once you've done the tests
