Joe Velasquez, supervisor for patient and community services at the Joe Arrington Cancer Center, joined Lubbock's First News to discuss an event coming up this Saturday (August 29).

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, with lung cancer being the first. But there is not a lot of awareness for prostate cancer and men typically don't know much about it.

The center will be doing testing for men who are 50-years-old and older, have a history of prostate cancer or have had high counts in their prostate screening antigen. The screenings will take place at the Lubbock Diagnostic Clinic on Saturday, August 29 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Testing is free and breakfast will be provided for all participants.
