Men can protect themselves by finding out about early detection and prevention of this disease. It is important that men talk to their doctors about early detection tests such as the digital rectal exam (DRE) and the prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test. The combination of an annual DRE and PSA blood test after the age of 50 offers the best chance of early detection and cure.

The Canadian Cancer Society, in conjunction with the Dawson Creek & District Hospital Laboratory, will be hosting a PSA testing clinic February 28, 2004 from 9:00 am ? 11:00 am for $10.00, by appointment.

Date:Saturday, February 28/04

Time: 9:00am ? 11:00pm BY APPOINTMENT

Location:Dawson Creek & District Hospital, Assembly Hall (basement)


Who: Men between 50 – 70 years who have not had a PSA test in the last year and who are not currently being treated for prostate disease.

APPOINTMENTS ARE NECESSARY and will be made for the first 40 men who request testing.
