Photo credit: prostate-health-center.comThe Dominica Cancer Society will continue its prostate cancer awareness campaign this weekend when its free prostate cancer screening moves to the community of Marigot.This free screening will be the fourth offered in collaboration with the Ross Medical School.The last campaign which undertaken in Portsmouth in March, saw a record turnout of men from the north. The Association believes that this is a clear indication that more men are taking the issue of prostate screening seriously; hence they have decided to offer the same opportunity to the Marigot Health District. A press release issued by the Cancer Society indicates that the campaign “will serve the residents of the northeast; however it is open to men from outside the district. The Society is encouraging men of the northeast to come and take advantage of this opportunity”.The screening activities will commence at 9 o’clock in the morning at the Marigot Hospital on Saturday and will include “Digital rectal examinations” along with relevant medical check-ups. “Men will be seen on a first come first serve basis by the doctors and medical students hope to continue through the afternoon until they have managed to screen all those who attend. There will be a choice of genders of medical students. At the end of the examination a report will be given to the attendee with recommendations for his Doctor to take appropriate action, if any”.The Society has made a special appeal to be proactive regarding their prostate health and men to take advantage of the free screenings.“Men are reminded of their tendency to be very irregular when it comes to their medical care and therefore, by the time a man experiences symptoms and gets checked it can be too late”.The free screening is open to men over the age of forty (40) to take advantage of this opportunity to check on this aspect of their health.This will take place at the Marigot Hospital Saturday the 23rd of June, 2012.Over two hundred and forty (240) men across the island have participated in these free examinations.Interested men who may have questions should call Patrick Henderson on 767 275 3019 or Neville Graham on 767 235 8798.Press Releaselast_img read more

Brazilian defender Marcelo has been underfire for tax issues and he responded to those criticism with a late strike to help his side to a comprehensive victory over their lowly opponents.City rivals Atletico Madrid also recorded a win on Sunday following their 1-0 win against Celta Vigo at Balaidos. French striker Kevin Gameiro got the only goal of the game for Diego Simeone’s men as they bounce back from their disappointing goalless draw with Qarabag in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).The win for Real Madrid takes them to within one point of second-placed Valencia and five point off the top spot presently occupied by their arch rivals Barcelona.
