Roger Williams to host free prostate cancer screening on September 14

(PROVIDENCE, RI - September 2, 2010) - Roger Williams Medical Center will host its annual free prostate cancer screening on Tuesday, September 14, 2010 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This prostate cancer screening is for men over 50 (over 40 if there is a family history of prostate cancer) who have not been diagnosed and are not currently under the care of an urologist.

Men who will be screened should enter through the Diagnostic Wing entrance of Roger Williams Medical Center, which is located at 825 Chalkstone Avenue in Providence. Free parking is available.

One in six men will get Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. Screening is a great way to detect cancer early while it is easiest to treat.
