Silver Cross Offers Health Screenings in September

New Lenox, IL (Aug. 18, 2014)—Silver Cross will offer free blood pressure checks daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Silver Cross Health Center, 12701 W. 143rd St., Homer Glen. Walk-ins welcomed. For more information, call (708) 364-6337. 

Incontinence Risk Assessment

Bladder control issues are not a normal part of aging and they are not something women should have to live with.  Take control of your pelvic health by completing a Sliver Cross Hospital’s short quiz at www.silvercross.org to find out if it is time you reached out for help.  

Prostate Cancer Screening

Prostate cancer remains a leading cause of death among men.  But when diagnosed early, can be treatable. Silver Cross Hospital in partnership with Advanced Urology Associates will offer free prostate cancer screenings for men Tuesday, Sept. 9 from 4 to 5 p.m. and Tuesday, Aug. 16, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital, 1850 Silver Cross Blvd., New Lenox. Two simple methods are often used in screening for prostate cancer—a digital rectal exam, in which a doctor feels the prostate gland through the rectal wall, and a blood test, in which a blood sample is tested for the presence of a substance called prostate specific antigen (PSA). Men should begin screening for prostate cancer at age 50, unless there is a family history of prostate cancer. Those men should be screened at age 40. To schedule an appointment, visit www.silvercross.org or call 1-888-HEAL (4325). No walk-in appointments will be accepted. 

Scoliosis Screenings

Dr. Anthony Rinella, spine surgeon, will offer free scoliosis screenings Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Silver Cross Health Center, 12701 West 143rd St., Homer Glen. To register, call (877) 694-7722. The screenings are free and available for children and adults.
