Free Prostate Cancer Screenings
In honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness month, Hannibal Regional is offering free prostate cancer screenings on September 20th and September 22nd from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at Hannibal Regional Medical Group. Space is limited and an appointment is required, to schedule your appointment call (573) 406-1641.
Screenings are not just for men who might have symptoms of prostate cancer. Since all men are at risk for prostate cancer, physicians suggest all men over the age of 55 be screened every year for the disease. It is also recommended that all men who are at a higher risk for prostate cancer, like African American men and men who have a family history of prostate cancer, be screened annually beginning at age 40.
Screenings are the only way to catch prostate cancer before it becomes dangerous to you or your loved one. If you are between the ages of 45 - 75, a prostate cancer screening may be right for you. Call (573) 406-1641 to see if you are eligible for a free prostate cancer screening.
What is Urology?
Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract in both genders, and with the genital tract or reproductive system in the male. Urogenital is a word that refers to the urinary and genital organs.
The medical specialty of obstetrics and gynecology focuses on the reproduction (genital) system of females. Nephrology is the medical specialty concerned with the kidneys.
The most serious and debilitating of benign kidney and urinary tract diseases includes end-stage renal disease (ESRD); kidney stone disease; urinary incontinence; benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH); interstitial cystitis; urinary tract infection; and polycystic kidney disease.
Other diseases also have a tremendous impact on the disability and death associated with kidney and urologic diseases, including diabetes and hypertension.
