Most men with PC die of natural causes prior to diagnosis; herbicide exposure exponentially shortens that time frame.....Do it regularly after age 50. If you are a Vet, start earlier like at 40. If you are a Vietnam Vet, do it IMMEDIATELY! It may save your life.

Great to see this thread resurrected. I had PSA tests done for years. Probably since age 40. Several years ago, my doc noticed a small bump in my PSA, and he sent me for a biopsy, which found cancer.

Fortunately, it was still within prostate, and after surgery, PSA# has been ZERO. I cant stress how important that simple blood test can be to your life!

Cheers,
Bill

Men's health is ignored at-large. We die much younger than women, yet all of the attention (walks, runs, and other campaigns) is on women's health. No one is going to pay attention to your health except you. Get a regular checkup. A friend of mine went in for his annual and his blood pressure was way up..... An aortic aneurysm was found and fixed. Another had the colonoscopy that found cancer. Twenty years later, he's still fine. GO GET CHECKED!

This is in the hopes that my dad, before and after he leaves this world, may facilitate saving or otherwise prolonging othersí lives. My dad went in for other routine health issues about 6 years ago and found out that he had prostate cancer. After removing the prostate it was clear that the cancer had reached beyond the outer walls of the prostate and had spread. They gave him 2-3 years at the time. While we feel blessed that we got 6 years more from my father, he is far too young (64), and the time has flown by very quickly.

In the end, the situation is not pretty, and one which we all should work to avoid. On behalf of my father, donít let fear of cancer or probing fingers keep you from finding these problems early enough to deal with them so that you may live a long and happy life.

For those who are suffering with this disease, keep up the good fight. My dad has remained very positive throughout and has been an inspiration to me and our family.

Take care,
I'll be going again tomorrow ... been having mine checked for several years. God Bless you and your family and may your Dad find Peace.

The good news (for me) is that I am 79 and I don't have to have anymore PSAs or colonoscopies ….. when I asked my doctor why , he said it was likely at my age I would die with prostrate cancer rather than from it....that is the bad news (for me)....

When I asked him why not a simple PSA, he said.... I have no symptoms.... and that my previous tests were excellent...... and in any case the test is not very reliable..... and if I had a troubling result...... he would be obligated to follow up with a biopsy.....when I found out how that was done....I agreed with him....

You youngsters need to get tested.....if you want to get old like me....

Yeah, Bart, you're right! Had the biopsy before my surgery, and it was not very pleasant. Not to mention the infection we had to fight before surgery could be done. GET CHECKED GUYS!

At 72 I thought I had experienced almost all of the pleasant and unpleasant things I would experience in my lifetime. Found a new one though.. Called a Systiscope. If you've not experienced it, it quite a time. They run a fiberoptic through the urethra and the bladder and the prostate. You can watch on the scree. Interesting to watch but not necessarily to experience. Now I know there is a roto rooter process for clearing up what was referred to as an "extremely nodular prostate". No cancer just a lot of "nodules" (what ever the hell those are from). So next report will be about the clean up.. stand by.. to stand bye..
Get it checked. It's a lot better knowning that it's not cancer.

I've been watching my PSA for a few years now, have been watching a cancer spot that has begun to move. It's time to have it removed in November before it goes any further.

I am 53 and was just diagnosed with prostate cancer. Had my PSA checked on 7/31/18 and it was high. Had it re-checked on 9/6 and the number had doubled. Biopsy done on 10/5 (not pleasant). Cancer was confirmed. Having a full body bone scan and CT scan done this Friday to see if it has spread outside the prostate. Cannot believe I am posting this. Time to go for a ride in SP0703.
