Hi, readers. If you're male then be sure to get your PSA levels tested when you go for the cholesterol etc. testing.
Young guys, go ahead and ask your doctor about a baseline PSA.
My concern comes from my dearest husband's recent diagnosis with prostate cancer.
Now, this is the slowest growing and most prevalent cancer among males. I'm not overly concerned about his future since it was caught early and will most likely have a good outcome.
Still, just as women are constantly barraged with the ads to get breast exams, you guys don't play the macho game or the embarrassed game or any other kind of game. Suck it up, fellas and get the old digital exam and PSA test.
Your embarrassment or hesitation is not worth the possiblities.
Nuff said. I hope.
