McKevitt to Host Prostate Cancer Screening

Assemblyman Tom McKevitt (R,C,I-East Meadow) will be hosting a free Prostate Cancer Screening at the East Meadow Public Library on May 2, 2015. Appointments are required, but open to all men 40 or over.

 

“Although prostate cancer is diagnosed in 15 percent of men, the majority of men will find they have a clean bill of health following their prostate cancer screening. There is no price you can put on having that peace of mind,” said McKevitt. “The chance that men have prostate cancer is slight; but if cancer is detected, it is vital to be diagnosed early. That’s why I hope men in the community will join me at this upcoming free event – for peace of mind and a clean bill of health.”

 

According to the National Cancer Institute, the number of deaths from prostate cancer has been reduced, thanks in large part to increased awareness and preventative health care, like the screening offered by Assemblyman McKevitt. According to their most updated data (2011), 2.7 million men are living with prostate cancer in the United States. These men face a 98.9%, five-year survival rate if cancer is diagnosed and properly treated.

 

The free prostate cancer screening hosted by McKevitt will involve a PSA blood test performed by Integrated Medical Foundation. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on May 2, 2015 at the East Meadow Public Library, located at 1886 Front Street in East Meadow.

 

All men age 40 or older who have not been previously treated for prostate cancer are eligible to attend the free screening, regardless of whether or not they have insurance. Participants must have an appointment and bring with them a photo ID containing their address (such as a driver license) and one stamped, self-addressed envelope (addressed to participant) so that they can be notified of the exam results.

 

To make an appointment, please call Assemblyman McKevitt’s office at (516) 228-4960. Please note, space is limited, so please call quickly for availability.
