Prostate Cancer Screenings

Prostate Cancer Screening

Prostate cancer remains the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men, aside from skin cancer. To help raise awareness of the disease, Northside Hospital’s Cancer Institute offers free prostate cancer screenings throughout the year.

Get a PSA blood test to measure your risk for prostate cancer

  • You must be between 45-75 and never had prostate cancer.
  • You must not have had a PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test in the last 12 months.
  • Interpreters are available free of charge.

Health care professionals will screen adult men for prostate cancer with a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test at no charge. A nurse navigator is available to help arrange follow up care, if indicated. Qualified Spanish interpreters available on site.

As an NCI Community Cancer Center, Northside Hospital leads the way in groundbreaking procedures for better outcomes and less invasive treatments for prostate cancer. In fact, more cases of the disease are diagnosed and treated at Northside than at any other community hospital in Georgia. Northside agrees with prostate cancer screening guidelines, established by the American Urological Association, which state that the PSA test is important in diagnosing prostate cancer at an early, more treatable stage in the course of the disease. Men are encouraged to talk with their health care provider to determine if screening for prostate cancer is right for them.
