Activities: - Organize an Annual Walk to create Awareness and Advocacy, entitled ‘1,000 Man-Walk’ and Four Annual Clinics in the Month of September, Screening Men of the Bahamas for signals, signs of Prostate Cancer.
The screenings (PSA & DRE)* are held at the Government Poly-technical Clinics of Elizabeth Estates, Flamingo Gardens, South Beach and Fleming Street all in the Month of September.

Meetings are held on the Third (3rd) Thursday of each Month at the Cancer Society of the Bahamas Complex, South of the ZNS Building, off Collins Avenue.
PSA - Blood Extraction and Lab-Testing (prostate influenced)
DRE – Digital Examination of the Prostate (finger & texture)
Both save many lives as “Early Detection” of Cancer may be treated successfully before it progresses.
On average, One (1) out of every Six (6) Men will get Prostate Cancer or at least an “Enlarged Prostate”. If appropriate, further testing – a Biopsy - will be made to confirm existence of the Cancer and determine the Stage – One to Four – of the Cancer and the Pace or Speed of its progress by the “Gleason Score” Grading.
Consultation with a certified Medical Specialist – the Urologist should then be made to understand the Cancer, the Treatment available and the Method preferable and suitable, considering the Health of the Patient and other considerations, such as finance and age.
An Oncologist after examination with evidence of Cancer treats the Patient with Chemotherapy and/or Radiation.
A high number of the PSA reading (above) may not indicate Prostate Cancer and may conflict with the condition of the DRE.
Likewise, an effected Prostate, resulting from the DRE (exam) may not show a high PSA Reading.
Both are necessary for a clear indication on Prostate Examination.
