Prostate Cancer Screenings

Winneshiek Medical Center offers a free prostate cancer screening during National Prostate Health Month every September.

A free digital rectal exam is performed by Brad Orvis, M.D., urologist with Mayo Clinic Health System at Winneshiek Medical Center. If recommended by Dr. Orvis, a PSA blood test will be drawn at that time. The blood test is $40 and is due at the time of the screening.

Who should be screened?

  • All men ages 50-75 not under a urologist’s care.
  • All men ages 35-75 with a family history of prostate cancer.
  • High-risk men, including Hispanic and African-American men.

Men also should consider the free prostate screening if they have never been screened for prostate problems; have a less forceful urinary stream; have difficulty starting to urinate; feel like their bladder is not emptying completely; or have an increased need to urinate during the night.

Call 563-382-2911 for up-coming screening dates.
