Free Screening Encourages Men to Help Prevent Cancer



Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, in partnership with ZERO -- The Project to End Prostate Cancer, offered free, confidential prostate cancer screenings recently to over 150 men from the community. The exams took place aboard a mobile prostate cancer testing vehicle. 

Prostate cancer strikes one in six Americans and is responsible for more deaths among men than any other cancer except skin cancer.  Experts advise that early detection is the best protection against prostate cancer.
