PSA screening

The Columbiana County Health District has announced that it will re-sponsor a clinic that offers prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening. The clinic is by appointment and will take place on Thursday, June 9, 2022 in the Health District on 7360 State Route 45 in Lisbon, Ohio.

Screening for residents of the general health district is free. Participants living outside the General Health District (Salem and East Liverpool Cities) or outside Columbiana County will be charged $ 25.00 for the PSA screening service. This must be paid in cash.

The American Cancer Society recommends annual PSA screening for men over the age of 50. African-American men are at increased risk of prostate cancer, so we recommend starting screening at age 45. Men with a family history of prostate cancer should also start screening at age 45.
