Prostate screenings offered

September 15, 1992

Tuesday's editions of The Sun carried a list of medical facilities offering free screenings for prostate cancer that included incorrect days and phone number for Riverside jTC Oncology Center in Belcamp. The Harford County facility's free screenings are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 26. For an appointment or more information there, call (410) 272-9224.

The Sun regrets the errors.

Hospitals throughout Maryland are offering free prostate screenings in an effort to flag cancers while they are early enough to cure, and to help lower the high death rate from prostate cancer; the state ranks sixth in prostate cancer deaths, and first in cancers overall.

Here is a schedule of the screenings. Screenings are by appointment only. For further information, call the Office on Aging, (800) 243-3425.
