MUHC urologist Dr. Peter Chan can check a prostate in 10 seconds and possibly save a life
In the time it takes most people to check their email, men can have their prostate checked – an examination that can indicate the presence of prostate cancer, which can be lifesaving if caught early enough.
As part of the 9th annual Men’s Health Awareness Day on Thursday, June 12th, MUHC urologist Dr. Peter Chan and his team invite men to stop by for a FREE health exam, including a health questionnaire, blood pressure and cholesterol checks, and prostate exam for those over the age of 40 years (a valid Quebec Medicare card is required).
- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian men
- 1 in 7 Canadian men develops it and 1 in 28 dies from it
- If detected and treated early, the survival rate is nearly 100%
