Dr. Sandra McCabe, Urologist, will be providing her expertise in the physical examination portion of the screening.
Prostate Cancer Screening guidelines state that all men 55-69 years old should talk with their physician about having an annual digital rectal exam (DRE) and a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test to help detect early prostate cancer. If you are not sure if you should participate, consult your physician.
Risk factors for prostate cancer include:
Lifestyle strategies that an individual adopts may reduce prostate cancer risk. Decrease animal fats in your diet and increase consumption of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
The PSA test measures blood levels of protein made by the prostate. The higher the PSA level the more likely that prostate cancer is present. The PSA test alone does not provide a definitive diagnosis for or against prostate cancer. The DRE (digital rectal exam), allows the physician to feel for irregular or abnormally firm area on the prostate gland that might be cancer. The PSA and DRE are only screening tools. With any abnormal test findings the patient is advised to consult with their family physician.
To participate in the free Prostate Cancer Screening, please schedule with the IU Health Tipton Hospital Cancer Service Department at 765.675.8397.
