Manning Up at Chicago Prostate Cancer Center Screening Event

Posted on: September 14th, 2016

Why I got screened at Chicago Prostate Cancer Center


“I would tell guys to get checked, especially if they have a family history of prostate cancer.  I had a friend who had prostate cancer and when I found out, he was already scheduled for surgery the next day!  I would have suggested he receive a second opinion here at CPCC, because it’s a great place and medical director Dr. Moran saved my father with the seed implant treatment.

Our family supports Prostate Cancer Foundation of Chicago (PCFC), which works with CPCC to keep up this helpful screening event, along with your patient support group and research studies.”   Tim L.


“I have friends who were treated here at CPCC and they said I should be sure to get checked out.  Now I tell others to keep on top of things and be sure to get screened for prostate cancer every year.”  John O.



“If you take care of your health and get screened whether or not it’s free, you can play it safe, even if you are at a certain age when prostate cancer can be more likely.  Thank you so much for doing this for us men so we can be here to enjoy and help our families.  I watch your Facebook page  to keep up with events and news about prostate cancer. “  Jim T.

CPCC and PCFC thank these forthcoming participants in the 2016 Free Prostate Screening Event for sharing their experience with us as part of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.   The event served 60 men, many who may not have otherwise sought screening.  Screening included PSA blood test, physical prostate examination, and consultation.  For more information contact Chicago Prostate Cancer Center at 630-654-2515, request a brochure or consultation,  or email  to arrange prostate cancer screening and discuss prostate cancer treatment options.
