    Just had a knuckle head friend have the exact same scenario. Luckily his scans came back clean but EVERY biopsy sample was positive. He's schedule for the removal in less than 2 weeks. He was 50 and had NEVER had it checked. :doh:

    I want to be heard loud and clear.

    I HAVE HAD TWO OR THREE DR'S TELL ME THAT "IF EVERY MAN LIVES LONG ENOUGH, HE WILL HAVE PROSTATE CANCER"!

    Get it checked guys and at least do a PSA Test once per year.
    I am saying this from experience, it ain't no fun when the Doc steps in and says, "I am sorry but you have prostate cancer and we need to be sure it has not spread to the bone and organs".

    Yep. I don't know why people don't listen to this. Everybody has somebody needing them around. I have 2 (possibly 3) older siblings that had it. Therefore I have about a 99.9999% chance of having it. And as you've said, if you live long enough, you WILL get it. So curable yet so neglected.

    Very sad news. But let's trust the Almighty God, everything is going to be OK!
    One of my Brother-In-Law had this kinda news years ago... He Was so afraid that would die. Doctors had to remove his little pump... He survide. Although he is having some ED after removing it.

    Reminded me of Gatlin Brothers. Your organ is the gold and the jar is the bank I guess in my twisted mind.

    Why is it that they can take a 3D picture of baby while still in the womb yet they still have to stick their finger up your butt to check your prostate?
