Prostate screenings

September 12, 2012

Screenings are helpful in catching prostate cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages, but also help identify other prostate conditions. So, Oconee Medical Center is hosting a free prostate screening for men Thursday, September 27, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the hospital. Appointments are required. Participants will receive a PSA blood test as well as a physical examination by a physician. Urologists Steven Lawton, MD and Robert McAlpine, MD will be conducting the exams. According to the American Cancer Society web site, one in six men will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime. Many physicians recommend an annual screening for men over the age of 50, but African-American men and men with a family history of prostate cancer may be urged to be screened at a younger age. Call 885.7905 to schedule an appointment.
