Free prostate cancer screening was offered at Webb’s Barber Shop on Eddie Robinson Drive on Saturday.

Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center hosts the annual barbershop screening each September, designated National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, to promote education and early detection of the disease.

A blood test can check for elevated levels of PSA — prostate-specific antigen — which may be an early warning sign of cancer.

The Cancer Center has additional prostate screenings planned for 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 24 at the office of 100 Black Men, 2050 N. Foster Drive; and prostate, breast, skin and colorectal screenings are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 26 at Hope Ministries, 4643 Winbourne Ave.
