According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. During Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, Sampson Regional Medical Center is reminding you that preventive care and annual screenings are important to your health! Prostate cancer, when diagnosed early, is treatable.
Prostate cancer is more prevalent in men over 55 and in African American males. However, men can also fall into a high-risk category and require an earlier screening if they have a first-degree relative diagnosed with prostate cancer before age 65. Men that fall in the high-risk category are
encouraged to speak to their provider regarding early screening.
During the month of September, Sampson Regional Medical Center will offer a limited number of free blood screenings for prostate cancer. To claim your free blood screening and to schedule your appointment at the Outpatient Diagnostics Center, call 910.592.2689, option 2.
