Prostate Cancer Screening
Did you know that African American men account for 20 percent of all new prostate cancer cases and that we can have prostate cancer as early as 35 years old? Prostate cancer is more serious for Black men than all other groups across Colorado as well as the United States. As a result, having an annual prostate screening is very important.
Our screenings will be held every February at our Annual Health Fair and every September during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. For more information, please call 303-355-3423.
