Covenant Cancer Care Center Offers
FREE Prostate Screening for Uninsured/Underinsured Men
Thursday, November 6
The American Cancer Society’s estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2014 are:
• About 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer
• Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in American men, other than skin cancer.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, behind only lung cancer. One man in 36 will die of this disease.
• Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men found to have prostate cancer do not die from it.
In fact, more than 2.5 million men in the United States who have had prostate cancer at some point are still alive today
• 1 in 7 men are affected by prostate cancer. It is most common in African American men over age 50 and men with a family history and causes 29,480 deaths a year.
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 6 on the 5th Floor of 5400 Mackinaw, Saginaw, from 5:00pm-8:00pm.
These screenings are available for men who are age 50 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.
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.
