Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

Hey Guys,

had another cancer spout in the family, they'll be fine after the OP.
just a heads up to the men round here, get your prostate checked.
not the OF style check either. see a Dr.

dad got diagnosed at 47 with prostate cancer, was lucky enough to have it caught and not spread (prostate was about to rupture on one side which would have killed him within weeks), godfather just got diagnosed with the same thing at 55. again, lucky to catch it only jerried on after speaking with my dad and realizing he had similar symptoms, and guess what, again hes lucky and other than getting the OP, hes gunna be fine.

get the check boys, turns out we lost my great grandfather and other relatives overseas for the same reason.

besides, you may find you enjoy it and you n the mrs can enjoy a new found love affair.

or it might remind you of priest school, in which case, shits rough for you ay.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

Yup unfortunately we have alot of cancer on my mothers side of the family ... I religiously get checkup's , as do my siblings ... I'd rather find out ASAP if something is not right.

I hate going to the doctors , but I love my family and owe it to them to be as healthy as possible.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

Yeah my uncle got prostate cancer and had to have it removed. It's not a pleasant thing. You lose your ability to get an erection for good in most cases. Viagra won't help. A finger in the butt hole is a temporary discomfort so get it done.

@XCSEDAN good advice man, and glad to hear they caught it early enough.

^ This is the right mindset, others care about you and need you around. My dad hated going to doctors and ignored a lot of his health issues. By the time he was diagnosed with cancer there wasn't much that could be done.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

I'm soon hitting the big 5-0 and have been thinking I should get this done for a while now. I remember seeing a movie once and the experience didn't look all that bad.

I had some urinary issues and part of the process was getting the prostate checked. While it's not pleasant, it's pretty quick and painless.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

My dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in his mid/late 60s. I'm 32 and quite worried I'll be on the same path. It's crossed my mind to have it done before 40. He doesn't smoke or drink, both of which I thoroughly enjoy and I feel like that only is going to make matters worse for me. A very close friend of mine just got diagnosed with Luekemia at age 34. That really hit home with me, that I am, in fact, no invincible and one day I may be in the big C boat. It's an eerie feeling if you dwell on it.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

I get my PSA checked. Prostate Specific Antigen- even if normal, it will jump to a much higher number than the previous when theres a CA starting.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

My dad has prostate cancer also. I've gotten in the habit of having OG do a reach around check on my prostate while I bang him on the weekend camp outs. A yearly PSA is easy to do.

Re: Sensitive Subject for men (not a joke)

i was going to say, PSA check is the easiest indicator.
i get mine checked yearly
and the ol 2 finger in the butt done once a year since 25.

rather catch it early.
removing the prostate does run a risk of loosing erections, depending on your surgeon though, my old man had private health cover, so for him, it took a while, but aparently now, with assistance it works.

also if your PSA does rise, quite often you can change your diet etc to help it.

How much extra do you have to pay your doctor to use 2 fingers?
