Free prostate cancer screenings offered Saturday

AVONDALE, OH (FOX19) - 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.
