This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
I am really glad I said yes when asked if I wanted this check-up. The PA noticed a strange uptick in my PSA and no follow up for a few years. So he sent me for a blood test. I had it done at about 1 pm. At 5 pm the PA called to give me the results. 101.5! He already made an appointment with a urologist.
Oh ya, the diagnosis, "very aggressive prostate cancer".
