Albany - When prostate cancer is caught early, the chances of survival are great. That's why Phoebe Putney Hospital and the American Cancer Society are teaming up to perform prostate screenings.

September is prostate awareness month and next Wednesday from 11AM-1PM, a lunch and learn session will be held for city, county and Water, gas and light male employees over 40. They'll receive a PSA screening, lunch, and information about prostate health.

"We just want to let men know that if cancer is caught at its first stage and in it's early stage, then the cure rate is 95% for our area," said Darrell Sabbs.

A community wide screening will be held at Phoebe this Saturday, September 8th, from nine to one. It's free to all men over 40. Appointments are preferred, but not required.

Call 229-312-2315 for more information.
