Cancer Care Institute of CarolinaSeptember

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).
