Nearly 1 in 7 men will develop prostate cancer in their lives
Statistics show that one in seven men will get prostate cancer. It is the second most common non-skin cancer in the US, with a new case diagnosed every three minutes. The five-year survival rate for prostate cancer is nearly 100%.
Gibbs Cancer Center is offering free prostate screenings for qualifying men ages 40-64 and for men with an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. Those qualifying factors include uninsured men or men without a primary care physician who have not had a PSA test in the last year within the recommended age ranges.
A prostate cancer screening event will be held Tuesday, June 14, from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Gibbs Cancer Center in Union, at 407 West South Street. To schedule your screening appointment, call 864-560-1966.
