Prostate-cancer screenings offered

Hilton Head Hospital will offer prostate-cancer screenings from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 21 as part of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

The screenings cost $15 and will consist of a blood test for the prostate specific antigen.

Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death for men. Among black men, the disease is more prevalent and possibly more aggressive, according to the hospital.

Reservations are required. To make an appointment, call 1-877-582-2737.
