Northside offers prostate cancer screenings (PSA blood tests) throughout the year at multiple convenient locations. To be eligible, men must be between the ages of 45 and 75 and must not have a PSA blood test within the past year or a previous prostate cancer diagnosis. Qualified interpreters will be available free of charge, with advanced requests. Prostate cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in American men. Men, who have a father, brother or son who has had prostate cancer, and men of African descent may have an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. Pre-registration is required for screening. To schedule an appointment or for information about other upcoming cancer screenings, call 404-531-4444.
