A.: The PSA screenings are offered from 10:00AM to 2:00PM on Sixth Street between Houston and Main Streets and are a simple finger stick only.
Q.: What is a PSA?
A.: PSA is a blood test measuring the Prostate Specific Antigen only produced by the prostate. If a man has a normal PSA level (less than 4.0 ng/ml) then his risk of having prostate cancer at the time of the screening is low. Doing a screening with PSA provides information to men about their prostate health and empowers them to seek medical care if there is anything of concern in the test results. All men tested the day of the event are sent a confidential letter with their results within a few weeks of the screening.
