Free Prostate Screening

Saturday, September 9th • 8:00 AM – Noon

These free screenings are for those who have not had a PSA/DRE performed within the past year. Screenings will consist of Digital Rectal Exam and PSA and will be held at the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma on the CCMH campus at 104 NW 31st St. Lawton, OK.

Call 580.250.6565 for an appointment.

These are the American Cancer Society recommendations for prostate screening:

  • Screening should take place at age 50 for men who are at average risk of prostate cancer
  • Screening should take place starting at age 45 for men at high risk of developing prostate cancer. This includes African Americans and men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother, or son) diagnosed with prostate cancer at an early age (younger than age 65).
  • Screening should take place at age 40 for men at even higher risk (those with more than one first-degree relative who had prostate cancer at an early age).
