It's been nearly a year since my surgery to remove my prostate after higher than normal psa blood test results revealed a problem. Before surgery I had a MRI scan , then a biopsy to confirm the presence of cancer cells within the prostate. But unfortunately I am in the same situation as Colin, who posted above, with my PSA blood test results not coming down to the ideal reading of .001 So it is being monitored regularly to see how the results trend. If it doesn't come down then I will have to undergo radiation treatment to sort it out.

So it is essential for us blokes to have regular PSA blood tests to see if there could be cancer in the prostate. If you don't, then possibly any cancer present could spread beyond the prostate, which could possibly be very detrimental to your health.

Cheers,
Andrew

X3. Its been a year since it was removed . Minimal long lasting effects but the upside is great. Pressure is great and full nights sleep are even better. :TU

Get mine every two years. Time for another PSA test. Thanks for the reminder.

I'm on "active surveillance": PSA every 3 months, MRI once a year and biopsy when indicated.
PSA was today, appointment with specialist on Monday.

Worth keeping an eye on, guys.
