Eddie Check Event
Eddie Check is an annual blood drive and free Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) testing event designed to raise awareness for prostate cancer.
The PSA test is a simple blood test that screens for prostate cancer by measuring the amount of PSA (a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate) in your blood. Large amounts of PSA may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. Men should still have an annual digital exam with their physician.
This year over 26,000 men will die of prostate cancer. But there’s still good news. If prostate cancer is caught early, the 5-year survival rate is nearly 100%. The numbers say it all — get tested!
On Thursday, September 13 and Friday, September 14, 2018, there will be Eddie Check locations all over East Tennessee.
