Study shows link between hepatitis C and prostate cancer
The database was created of all men who underwent transrectal prostate biopsy at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center fromJanuary 1, 2007, through December 31, 2009. Compiled data results revealed a correlation between hepatitis C antibody detection and prostate cancer.
However, men 40 and over, especially those who have been treated for hepatitis C, will want to have a PSA screening to rule out the possibility of prostate cancer. Bronx residents interested in obtaining a free PSA screening can receive one up to June 26, 2011 at participating hospitals as part of a public health initiative sponsored by the New York Daily News.
