Description Description

The third edition of Men’s Health and Wellness Day at Lachine Hospital takes place Thursday, June 13, 2024, from 8:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. The MUHC’s Lachine Hospital teams invite men to take part in this event.  

A check of your health: it’s a must  

Come see our teams for a no-appointment-needed check-up that includes urine, blood and blood pressure tests and, if you wish, a prostate exam. Our teams at Lachine Hospital will provide any necessary follow-up.  

What? Free, no appointment necessary, medical check for men: urine and blood pressure tests, blood draws, and prostate exams for men.  

Who? All men. 

We look forward to seeing you there!  

Tests that can save a life  

Did you know that one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lives? Testing makes it easier to detect this cancer early.  

“During this month of June, the month of Father's Day, it’s important to remind men that prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in males, and the fourth most common form of cancer in Canada. It’s essential that men take the time to check their health and see a doctor if something doesn’t seem right. Going to see a doctor is not a sign of weakness,” says Dr. Serge Carrier, urologist and director of Surgery at Lachine Hospital.  

Seeing a doctor is the first step to taking charge of your health. Do it for yourself and for those close to you!
