One out of six men will develop prostate cancer at some point in his life. The good news is that with early detection, it is very treatable. “Each year, Floyd Memorial makes getting a prostate cancer screening so quick and easy that there’s no reason for men not to participate,” said Pam Raake, RN, clinical manager of the Ambulatory Services Center. “Last year, we completed 824 screenings in just two hours. Men who participate receive both a PSA blood test and a digital rectal exam. After the screening, we follow up with all patients who have abnormal exams or blood tests.”
