Columbus Community Hospital will be offering free prostate screenings June 26 – 30 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Total health care is about more than just receiving care when you are sick. Preventative screenings are an important part of maintaining good health.

Prostate screenings use a simple blood test to measure the level of prostate specific antigens (PSA) in the blood. Elevated PSA levels can be an indicator of prostate cancer, as well as other prostate conditions.

General guidelines recommend prostate screenings for men over 50, although certain factors like a family history of prostate cancer make screenings important for men ages 40 – 54.

Prostate screenings and regular health checkups help patients address a potential illness before symptoms begin. In many cases, screenings bring awareness to a condition so patients and their doctors can seek treatment options prior to an advanced stage.
