Free prostate cancer screenings
from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. September 22. Registration
Ky. (August 6, 2004) -- University
of Kentucky Markey
Cancer Center will offer free prostate cancer
screenings from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. September 22.
Registration is required. The free screenings are
made possible, in part, through the support of Toyota
Motor Manufacturing Kentucky Inc.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer
in men, and most cases are diagnosed in men over
the age of 40. To qualify for screening, men must
be age 40 or older and must never have been diagnosed
with prostate cancer. Because of their increased
risk for the disease, men with a family history of
prostate cancer and minority men age 35 or older
also are eligible for the free screenings. Men who
participated in last September’s free prostate
screening at UK Markey Cancer Center are encouraged
to register for this September's screening. The screening
will be held in the Whitney-Hendrickson Building,
UK Markey Cancer Center. To register or for more
information, call UK HealthCare at (859) 257-4488
or (866) 340-4488.
