Dr. David Samadi, a world-renowned prostate cancer surgeon is all set to conduct free prostate cancer screenings at the Chian Federation, 4401 Broadway in Astoria, New York 11103 on Saturday, February 16 2013. Men who attend this screening event will receive Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood tests and/or digital rectal exams (DRE) at no charge between 2:30 PM and 6:30 PM.
“PSA remains a valuable tool in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Even though it may not be a sensitive test, knowing your PSA, and PSA trend is vital. We are seeing many young men with aggressive prostate cancer that are diagnosed due to PSA screening,” explains Dr. Samadi.
Men in and around the area are encouraged to make the most of this opportunity. Most men don’t recognize the importance of getting their PSA checked and this is a great initiative on Dr. Samadi’s part in creating awareness and spreading the message of early detection.
Dr. Samadi says, “Certainly interpreting your PSA along with your physical exam, family history is the real art of medicine. And it has to be individualized.”
Guys, it’s time to man up and get your prostate checked!
