Tri-Cities Cancer Center Offering Free Prostate Screenings

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Early detection can be the key to surviving prostate cancer for thousands of men affected by the disease. The Tri-Cities Cancer Center is offering free prostate screenings in September.

Next month the center will be offering free screenings for men who are over the age of 50. The event is targeting men who may not be able to afford a prostate screening.

Approximately one out of six men are diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Annual cancer screenings can lead to early detection and more treatment options. The screenings will include a prostate examination and a psa blood test.

The screenings will be held from September 23rd through 25th. There will also be Spanish speaking assistance available.

Appointments are required and can be made by calling the Tri-Cities Cancer Center at 509-737-3420.
