What Men Need to Know about Cancer

Listen to what Lexington Medical Center oncologist Dr. Steve Madden of Lexington Oncology Associates says about what men need to know about cancer and appropriate screening. The video is from an interview he did with news anchor Ben Hoover on WIS-TV.

The interview was part of a men’s cancer screening at WIS on November 3rd. Lexington Medical Center physicians and clinicians volunteered to screen members of our community for prostate, thyroid, neck and skin cancer. The screenings touched on a number of issues. Listen to what Dr. Nicholas Limperos of Southern Surgical Group at Lexington Medical Center told WIS news anchor Dawndy Mercer-Plank about hypothyroidism.

In preparation for the screenings, Deirdre Young, LMC Manager of Cancer Programs, spoke about what these routine screenings can identify and why they’re important.

Lexington Medical Center’s Community Outreach department travels around the Midlands performing thousands of health screenings each year. To schedule one at your business, church or organization, you can call 936-8850.
