Cancer Screenings

Cancer Screenings

Early detection is the #1 resource available to help prevent and fight cancer. That's why Reid Hospital has several screenings available for men that help to do just that!   

Colon & Rectal Cancer Screenings

Starting at age 50, all men are at an average risk of developing colon or rectal cancer. Fortunately, there are several screening options available that can easily detect early stages of cancer or polyps that could develop into cancer.  Our screening rcommendations are as follows:

  • Perform a yearly fecal occult blood test.
  • Those who have a family history of colon cancer or polyps should follow these guidelines more closely. You should also be more closely monitored if you have a history of chronic inflammatory bowel syndrome.

Prostate Cancer Screenings

Beginning at age 55, every man should have a digital rectal exam (DRE) along with a PSA blood test. This will detect any abnormalities or elevations.  These tests will become a yearly exam from age 55-69. 

African-American men, and men who have incidents of prostate cancer in their families, are at greater risk, therefore at age 40 they should talk with their physician about screenings and risk.  At age 50 every man should talk with their physician about their risk of prostate cancer.

See below for a free prostate screening on April 9th!

For more information on our Cancer Care Program, contact Kelly Witter RN, MSN, Director of Oncology or call (765) 983-3455.
