Are you an uninsured or underinsured male age 45 or over with a family history of prostate cancer or of African American ethnicity? Or, are you age 50 with an average risk for prostate cancer? If so, you’re invited to receive a free prostate cancer screening at Shore Cancer Center on Tuesday, June 26 between 3 and 7 pm. Urologic surgeon Dr. Meredith Perry will conduct the screenings, which involves a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, but it is also treatable when discovered in its early stages.
To schedule your free appointment, please contact Cancer Community Outreach Manager Angela Bailey at 609-653-3992.
