Free Prostate ScreeningsSeptember is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Winthrop Urology and Senator Kemp Hannon will sponsor two free prostate screening events.

“Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death in men,” said Senator Kemp Hannon. “The American Cancer Society estimates 180,000 new cases of prostate cancer to be diagnosed in 2016, with more than 26,000 succumbing to the disease.”

The first event will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 20, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Winthrop Urology, 1300 Franklin Ave., Suite ML 6, in Garden City.

The second screening will take place on Thursday, Sept. 22, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Winthrop Urology, 20 Hicksville Rd., Suite 3, in Massapequa.

“September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month,” said Hannon. “So now is a perfect time to schedule a free screening—if caught early, prostate cancer can be very treatable. About one man in seven will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, and about six cases in 10 are diagnosed in men 65 and older. It’s extremely important for men to be tested, as early as the age of 40.”

Registration is required and appointments can be made by calling Senator Hannon’s community office at 516-739-1700. Screenings will include a PSA blood test and an optional digital rectal exam.
