Silver Cross/Advanced Urology Associates Offer
New Lenox, IL (Aug. 29, 2013)—Prostate cancer remains a leading cause of death among men. But when diagnosed early, can be treatable. Silver Cross Hospital in partnership with Advanced Urology Associates will offer free prostate cancer screenings for men Thursday, September 12 from 8 to 9 a.m.; Friday, Oct. 11, from 1 to 2 p.m.; and Friday, Nov. 1, from 3 to 4 p.m. All screenings will be held in the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital, 1850 Silver Cross Blvd., New Lenox. Two simple methods are often used in screening for prostate cancer—a digital rectal exam, in which a doctor feels the prostate gland through the rectal wall, and a blood test, in which a blood sample is tested for the presence of a substance called prostate specific antigen (PSA). Men should begin screening for prostate cancer at age 50, unless there is a family history of prostate cancer. Those men should be screened at age 40. To schedule an appointment, visit www.silvercross.org or call 1-888-660-HEAL (4325). No walk-in appointments will be accepted.
