SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

In recognition of Prostate Cancer Awareness month, Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute will offer free prostate cancer screenings for men at several Upstate locations in September.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer, other than non-melanoma skin cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men in the United States.

African-American men have a higher incidence rate and at least twice the mortality rate compared with men of other racial/ethnic groups.

Any man between the ages of 50 and 75 years is eligible or or if you have a family history of prostate cancer.

Any African-American between 40-75 years of age are also eligible.

Screenings are free of charge but registration is required. Register by calling 864-560-7999.
