For more than 20 years, WellStar West Georgia Medical Center has offered prostate screenings each September during Prostate Cancer Awareness month for a minimal charge at the Enoch Callaway Cancer Center. Cancer Care Navigator Wanda Lowe, RN, arranges follow-up visits for those who need further diagnostics.
Our next prostate screenings and physical exams will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, and Thursday, Sept. 15, on the main entrance level of the Enoch Callaway Cancer Center. The cost is $5 per person. Sreening are for men ages 50 and older with no family history of prostate cancer as well as for men ages 40 and older who are African-American or have a family history of prostate cancer. Participating physicians will be Dr. Michael Myers and Dr. Nick Vlachos.
