Screenings at Aiken Regional
Aiken Regional Medical Centers offer screenings throughout the year.
Aiken Regional offers free colorectal cancer screening kits during March to area residents who are 50 years of age or older, or who have a family history of colorectal cancer. The kit contains a test designed to detect small amounts of hidden blood in your stool, which may indicate early problems with polyps or cancer, and can be performed in the privacy of your home.
Aiken Regional provides free prostate-specific antigen (PSA) for men and cholesterol and blood pressure screenings for all at the annual Life Healthy Lifestyle Expo.
All men age 50 and older, as well as those over 45 years of age who are considered high risk, can get a free prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test at the Cancer Care Institute of Carolina. The simple blood test takes only minutes -- yet it could save your life.
Just go to the Cancer Care Institute and ask the receptionist for a PSA test order. Take the order to Aiken Regional Medical Centers to have the blood drawn. A physician will contact you with your results.
Talk with your doctor about having your PSA blood level tested every year after age 50, and every year after age 45 if you’re considered high risk (you have a family history of prostate cancer or are African–American or Hispanic).
When you need to find a doctor for yourself or your family, our FREE Direct Doctors Plus physician referral service can help.
