Orange Regional Medical Center Hosts Free Prostate Cancer Seminar

Friday, September 1st, 2006

Orange Regional Medical Center will host a free seminar on prostate cancer treatment and prevention at The Community Health Education Center, 110 Crystal Run Road, Middletown on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 6:30p.m. Dr. Gerard Galarneau, board certified urologist, will discuss prostate cancer prevention, early detection and the latest treatment options.

The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 234,460 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States in 2006. Of those cases, about 27,350 men will die of this disease. If detected early, treatment options are much broader, and the chances for a cure are much greater.

ORANGE REGIONAL OFFERS FREE PROSTATE CANCER SCREENINGS

Friday, September 1st, 2006

The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 234,460 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States in 2006. Of those cases, about 27,350 men will die of this disease. If detected early, treatment options are much broader, and the chances for a cure are much greater. That's why Orange Regional is offering free prostate cancer screenings from September 19 to September 21 at The Community Health Education Center, 110 Crystal Run Road, Middletown.

The prostate screening program is for men who meet the following criteria:

- Have not been under the care of a urologist in the past 5 years
- Have no personal history of prostate cancer
- Are between the ages of 40 - 75

To schedule an exam, please call The Orange Regional Health Connection at 1-888-321-ORMC (6762) by September 8. Appointments are limited and will be made on a first come, first serve basis. The exam consists of a digital rectal exam (DRE) and a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test, each of which takes about a minute to perform. The combination of these two methods is the most effective procedure for detecting prostate cancer at an early stage.
