If it’s Monday, it must be football and sub sandwiches…and prostate screenings?
Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula’s popular "guys night out" prostate screening returns on Monday, November 25, with big-screen viewing of the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Washington Redskins and free submarine sandwiches and prostate screenings.
"We’ve made this an annual event because of its popularity — and its importance," says Eric LoMonaco, director of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at Community Hospital. "Prostate cancer is the second-most common cancer among men, following skin cancer."
Prostate cancer can often be found early by testing the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in a man's blood. PSA tests will be provided in a private, confidential setting.
