Free Screenings During Prostate Cancer Awareness Week
Date:9/16/2009

and to work with their doctors to determine a screening schedule that is right for them. Prostate cancer screenings during PCAW take about 10 minutes and include a PSA blood test and a DRE administered by a trained professional. Men can also choose to have their cholesterol and testosterone levels checked, as many factors play into overall health awareness and a man's risk for prostate cancer.

Given the number of factors playing into a man's risk for prostate cancer, the PCEC has dedicated each day of PCAW to one particular topic relating to the disease. The days include:

Monday, Sept. 21 - General Prostate Cancer Awareness Day

Tuesday, Sept. 22 - Advanced Prostate Cancer Awareness Day

Wednesday, Sept. 23 - Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Awareness Day

Thursday, Sept. 24 - Women, Families & Caregivers Day

Friday, Sept. 25 - Know Your Numbers Day

Saturday, Sept. 26 - On the Horizon Day

To find a PCAW screening site near you and for more information on prostate cancer, please visit www.prostateconditions.org or call toll free 866-4PROST8.
