MONTEREY, Calif. — Football, sub sandwiches…and prostate screenings?
Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula’s popular “guys’ night out” prostate screening returns on Thursday, October 22, with big-screen viewing of the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Seattle Seahawks and free submarine sandwiches and prostate screenings.
“We’ve made this an annual event because of its popularity — and its importance,” says Eric LoMonaco, director of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at Community Hospital. “Prostate cancer is the second-most common cancer among men, following skin cancer.”
Prostate cancer 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 free 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 5-8 p.m. in the main conference rooms at Community Hospital, 23625 Holman Highway, Monterey. Registration is required by calling 800-388-4301 by October 15.
