Free Prostate Cancer Screenings
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men, other than skin cancer. It is also the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in men. Early detection offers the best chance for long-term survival, which is why the PSA blood test combined with a brief exam has become an annual event for so many men. Stony Brook Medicine's Department of Urology has a long-standing committment to providing free annual prostate cancer screenings for at risk individuals.
We recommend annual screenings for all men 50 years of age and older. African-American men and those with family history of prostate cancer should begin annual screenings at 40 years of age. The Prostate Care Program offers free screenings throughout the year at the Stony Brook Urology Clinic, at Technology Park, as well as at various locations across Long Island.
To schedule an appointment at one of our free screenings, please call 631-444-4000.
Prostate Cancer Support Group
Stony Brook Medicine offers a support group for prostate cancer patients. The group meets the first Monday of each month, but individual and family therapy is also available. For further information, please call Geoffrey O'Connell, CSW, at 631-444-4343.
