Aultman providing free cancer screening day

FPS staff report

On April 13, Aultman Cancer Center continues its commitment to the community for cancer awareness and prevention with its 12th annual free Cancer Screening Day. Registration begins March 18. Aultman Cancer Center encourages those with a family history or who have never been screened for cancer to call and make an appointment as soon as possible. Free cancer screening options on April 13 include: breast, cervical, colon, head & neck, lung, prostate and skin.

Screenings will be held from 8 a.m.-noon and are open to the public; however, appointments must be made in advance and do fill quickly. For more information or to make an appointment, call 330-363-2865. Reservations will be accepted March 18 through April 10, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Educational materials will also be available to teach the signs and symptoms of the different types of cancer, as well as important screening guidelines for men and women as they age. This includes: women over 40 years of age should have a mammogram once a year and men age 50 and over should be screened for prostate cancer each year.

The best cancer prevention is to live a healthy lifestyle. In summary, don’t use tobacco products, limit your time in the sun and use sunscreen with SPF of at least 15, lead a physically active life and take control of your weight.

This 12th annual event is just one way that Aultman and its employees – who volunteer their time for this event – are committed to fighting the nation’s second most common cause of death.
