Covenant Cancer Care Center Offers
FREE Prostate Screening for Uninsured/Underinsured Men
Thursday, November 7
According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and it is estimated 238,590 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2013. While prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer, the disease occurs more frequently in African-American men, who are also more likely to be diagnosed at an advanced stage. Prostate cancer tends to run in families, and having a brother or father with this form of cancer can more than double a man’s risk of developing it. While it can be a serious disease, most men who are diagnosed do not die from prostate cancer.
Fortunately, annual testing is the best way to find prostate cancer early. And early detection is the best prevention.
The Covenant Cancer Care Center is offering a free prostate screening Thursday, November 7 at the Saginaw Radiation Oncology Center (4141 Tittabawassee Road, Saginaw) from 5:00pm-8:00pm.
These screenings are available for men who are age 40 or older and are uninsured or their insurance does not cover prostate screenings.
People who meet the above criteria should call 989.583.6278 today to schedule an appointment. Advance registration is required and space is limited to the first 300 men. Transportation is available, so please inquire when registering.
This brief screening includes a health history, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and a digital rectal examination.
Please help us spread the word about the benefits of early detection to others in your life- your fathers, brothers, grandfathers, friends and relatives.
