Local provider offering free cancer screenings


CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) – Governor Tom Wolf announced on Wednesday that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Wolf said it was detected early, and he is optimistic that the disease is treatable.

According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the number one cancer among men over the age of 50 and the second leading cause of cancer death in men.

Urology of Central PA is offering free prostate exams and screenings.

Dr. R. Scott Owens, M.D. has been practicing for 25 years. He says he’s offering free screenings for people who have no insurance or have concerns about out-of-pocket expenses as a way to give back.

“We feel that it’s our mission to reach out into the community,” Owens said. “We need to make ourselves available to at least diagnose and offer treatment.”
