The Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and Prostate Health International’s Gary Papa Run are offering free prostate screenings as part of a research program. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men. Screening is important because prostate cancer shows no symptoms in its earliest stages.
Screening is recommended for all men age 35 years and older.
Free screenings, offering a blood test for prostate specific antigen (PSA), testosterone and cholesterol, and a digital rectal exam will take place at the following two locations:
• Wednesday, September 15, 2010, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Kimmel Cancer Center – Bodine Building
• Tuesday, September 21, 2010, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Radiation Oncology Pavilion at Jefferson’s Methodist Hospital
Registration is required. To register for your free screenings, or for more information, call 1-800-JEFF-NOW.
