Urologists from Shore Comprehensive Urology

John Foley, MD, Christopher Runz, DO, Christopher Parry, DO, Duane Cespedes, MD, and John Knud-Hansen, MD will be providing free prostate cancer screenings at the Cancer Center. 

Studies show that one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.  In an effort to promote early detection of prostate cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths for men, free prostate cancer screenings will be offered on Wednesday, September 23 at the Cancer Center at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health, located at 509 Idlewild Avenue in Easton.  Screenings are being coordinated by the Cancer Center and the Talbot County NAACP.  Drs. Duane Cespedes, John Foley, John Knud-Hansen, Christopher Parry and Christopher Runz of Shore Comprehensive Urology will be assisting with the screenings, which will be provided from 5-8pm.

Those interested in the screening are encouraged to discuss the testing with their primary care providers to determine if the PSA blood test will benefit them in the early detection of prostate cancer and other prostate health issues.

The screenings are open to the public.  Uninsured and underinsured are welcome to participate.  Pre-registration is required for screening and space is limited.  For additional information or to schedule an appointment, call the Cancer Center at 410-820-6800.
