MONTEREY, Calif. — If it’s Monday, it must be football and sub sandwiches…and prostate screenings?

Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula is holding a “guys night out” on Monday, November 19, with big-screen viewing of the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Chicago Bears and free submarine sandwiches and prostate screenings.

Prostate cancer is the second-most common cancer among men, following skin cancer. It can often be found early by testing the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in a man's blood. PSA tests will be provided in a private, confidential setting.

The event is open to men 45-70 who have not been diagnosed with prostate cancer and have not been screened in the last two years. It will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the main conference rooms at Community Hospital, 23625 Holman Highway, Monterey. Registration is required by calling 888-45-CHOMP (888-452-4667).
