Winona Health will provide prostate screening for $15 (cash or check accepted) on Thursday, October 18, from 7:30 – 9:30 a.m. and 4 – 6 p.m.
American Cancer Society guidelines recommend that men make an informed decision with their primary healthcare provider about whether to be tested for prostate cancer. Starting at age 50, talk with your doctor about the pros and cons of testing so you can decide if testing is the right choice for you. If you are African American or have a father or brother who had prostate cancer before age 65, you should have this talk with your doctor starting at age 45.
Prostate cancer screening takes approximately 30 minutes. The screening will consist of two parts: a Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test and a Rectal Exam (DRE). The first part of the screening will be a blood draw to obtain the PSA, and a physician will perform the DRE exam.
Check in will be on the second floor of the clinic on the Winona Health campus, 859 Mankato Avenue. The $15 fee will be collected (cash or check accepted) at registration. Appointments are encouraged, and walk-ins will be accepted as time permits.
