Man vans rolling around Alberta

Posted on: August 30, 2016 | Author: Staff

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and for the second year in a row ATB is proudly sponsoring the Man Van. These mobile clinics will crisscross Alberta screening men for prostate cancer. Don't worry guys, it's a blood test, not a glove test!

The test

Inside the Man Van, men over 40 can get a free baseline PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test. PSA is a protein produced by the prostate and released in small amounts to the bloodstream. The amount of PSA in the bloodstream can often predict a man's risk of prostate cancer.

Early detection

There are often no early warning signs of prostate cancer and early detection saves lives. Prostate cancer is the leading cancer for Alberta men. One in seven men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime.

Balancing work, family and a social life keeps people busy, and often making (and keeping) medical appointments falls off the to-do list. The Man Vans aim to make it easy. No appointment necessary for your confidential test in the comfort of a 32-foot motor home!

Our partner

The Prostate Cancer Centre is a non-profit organization dedicated to the early detection and treatment of prostate cancer and prostate related disease. They support excellence in prostate cancer awareness, education, diagnosis, treatment, and research with the ultimate goal of eliminating advanced prostate cancer.
