PSA screening

The Columbiana County Health District is pleased to announce that it will once again be hosting a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) testing clinic. This clinic is by appointment only and will be held on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at the Health District located at: 7360 State Route 45, Lisbon, Ohio.

There will be no charge for residents of the general health district to screen. Participants who live outside of the General Health District (Cities of Salem and East Liverpool) or outside of Columbiana County will be charged $25.00, which must be paid in cash, for the PSA screening service.

The American Cancer Society recommends annual PSA screening for men over 50. Because African American men have a higher risk of prostate cancer, it is recommended that they begin screenings at age 45. Men who have a family history of prostate cancer should also start screenings at age 45.

To make an appointment for our PSA clinic, please call 330-424-0272.
