Free prostate cancer screenings offered Saturday


The Urology Group is offering free prostate cancers screenings for men in the community.

More than 200 local men have registered for the free screenings from a community program offered by The Urology Group, which has been working with The Collective Empowerment Group to increase awareness among the African-American community as well.

Registration for the event is not required.

The screening consists of patient registration, a simple blood test, and a quick prostate exam. It is about a 5-10 minute process and it is painless. There are partitions up for patient privacy.

The event is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Southern Baptist Church, 3556 Reading Road, Cincinnati.
