OU Medical Center and OU Physicians will offer free prostate cancer screenings Saturday for men ages 40 to 70.
The screenings will be at the OU Physicians Building, 825 NE 10th St. Registration is required and is available by calling 271-5000.
The screening consists of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood tests, funded by the Medical Center Volunteers Inc. and Digital Rectal Exams (DRE) performed by urologists.
Prostate cancer is the number one cancer affecting men in Oklahoma and is the second leading cause of death due to cancer in the United States. Each year, more than 500 Oklahoma men die from prostate cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends men 50 years old and older should have a screening once a year.
