Efforts remain to get prostate screenings done in Cape May County. Cape May County Health Department’s Early Detection Program provides free prostate cancer screenings throughout the year for uninsured men age 50 and older who live in Cape May County.
Prostate screenings serve as an important cancer fighting check for men; take the time now to make an appointment. Early detection of prostate cancer provides one of the highest cure rates of any cancer. If caught early, nearly 100% of men are still alive five years after diagnosis, but if the cancer has spread to a distant location, the five-year survival rate is only 34 percent.
