Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. In 2018, the United States had 164,690 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed according to the American Cancer Society. Approximately one in every nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Early prostate cancer has no symptoms, which is why screening is important.

Bellefonte Urological Associates is the practice of OLBH urologists Jeremy Bonzo, M.D., and Brian DeFade, D.O. To schedule an appointment for a prostate cancer screening or for more information on the health fair for men, call the OLBH CareLine at (606) 833-CARE (2273).
