Free prostate cancer screening offered Saturday

Harrison Medical Center, together with The Doctors Clinic, is hosting a free prostate cancer screening on Sat., Sept. 21. Urologists will provide a free physical exam and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Harrison HealthPartners Urology in Bremerton.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men, but when detected early, the five-year survival rate is close to 100 percent. Men without prior diagnosis of prostate cancer, men 55 or older or 35 or older if there is a family history of prostate cancer, and African American and Latino men age 35 or older, are all eligible for the screening.

Manas Jain, MD, of Harrison HealthPartners will provide screenings along with Marc Mitchell, DO; Todd Garvin, MD; and Marina Cheng, MD, all of The Doctors Clinic.

Harrison HealthPartners Urology is located in the Westsound Professional Building, 2500 Cherry Ave., Suite 302, Bremerton. For more information, visit harrisonmedical.org/oncology.

Reservations required. To make an appointment, call 866-844-WELL.
