Early detection greatly increases your odds of successfully treating prostate cancer. To participate you must be a male 40-80 years of age, or 35-40 years of age and high risk (African American, Family History, Hazardous Occupation, please call for more information).
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.
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 with researchers.
The free screening includes a (DRE) digital rectal exam and a blood draw to test the levels of PSA—prostate-specific antigen—in your blood. This test is offered as part of an ongoing, long-term research project.
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).
