Early detection greatly increases your odds of successfully treating
prostate cancer. Men 40 years of age or older should take
advantage of this opportunity to be screened with prostate-specific
antigen (PSA) testing and a digital rectal exam (DRE).
African-American men and men with a family history of prostate
cancer are particularly at risk. This confidential screening will
be performed by a board certified urologist and health care professionals from Penn Medicine Princeton
Health and is sponsored by PMC’s Edward &
Marie Matthews Center for Cancer Care.
This test is offered
as part of an ongoing, long-term research
project. To participate, you must sign
a consent form and complete a survey
focused on quality-of-life issues. Your
completed survey, blood test results and
demographic information will be shared
This screening is supported by Princeton Health's Community Wellness.
Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center is accredited as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC).
