Prostate Health Assessments Events

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and Prostate Health International’s Gary Papa Run are offering free prostate health screenings as part of a research program. The first is on Jefferson’s Center City campus on September 18 and the second free screening is on September 27 in South Philadelphia at Jefferson at the Navy Yard.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men. Screening is important because prostate cancer shows no symptoms in its earliest stages.

Many organizations recommend prostate health assessment as part of men’s health care. The free screenings include a blood test for prostate specific antigen (PSA), testosterone and cholesterol, and a digital rectal exam.
