September 15th: FREE Prostate Cancer Screening

Monday, September 15 from 6:00-8:00pm

What you know can save your life

Screening is one of the best tools for early detection of prostate cancer. This screening is available to men ages 50 and older who have not been evaluated by a urologist or had a PSA test in the past 12 months.

Space is limited and registration is required – call 978-937-6393 to schedule your screening. Funded by TeamWalk for CancerCare.

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in a man's prostate - a small walnut-shaped gland that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Prostate cancer usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. While some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.

Prostate cancer that is detected early - when it's still confined to the prostate gland - has a better chance of successful treatment.
