    A few years back my proctologist was giving me the fickle finger exam and said that he felt some roughness on my prostate. A biopsy later and I found I had cancer. i don't believe all that "slow growing cancer" stuff you hear as I have had too many buddies die of prostate cancer. I had the radical surgery. I don't have a prostate any more, but then I don't have cancer either.

    I asked my doctor to use two fingers instead of one for my exam. He looked puzzled and asked “why?” I said I want a second opinion while he’s in there.

    Several years ago, went to my primary doc for just a routine exam, he decided to do a PSA and a finger exam. He had an intern with him and this dude was about 6'8" and 350 pounds....My doc sez...."you want him to do your exam?" I said NO THANKS, gimme some normal fingers!!! We all had a good laugh. Guy probably wore a size 16 ring.
    I think they were just kidding, but I wasn't taking any chances.

    I have 3 brothers. All 3 have had prostate cancer. I'm the youngest. The odds are about 110% I'll get it. I ain't playing around.

    When you get your lab work note your PSA and TRACK IT!

    Flexible cystoscopy isn’t too bad after you get the first couple out of the way. Last one I had, doc had the monitor where I could see it, cool to see inside the bladder and when it looked back to see the cable entering the bladder.
