    Mine is done every six months, blood test and vingerdruk methods.
    If any indicates further action necessary, they will do it.
    Better to be careful than be sorry...and its no big deal really, women go through worse
    embarrassing tests.

    And on a lighter note, my anethatist told me not to worry as I'm more likely to be run over by a bus. Actually a cheerful fellow. At least I laughed as sleep took over 😁

    In my case no symptoms at all. It was a found by chance by my GP during a routine examination before an overseas trip.

    Very simple. Ask the doctor to take a blood test. They can also do ultrasonic scan.

    Too many people postpone testing for too long. If they catch early it can be sorted out with few exceptions.

    I did find that I peed more often and that the stream was not as strong. I also suddenly had a blood pressure problem and I had no history of blood pressure and the doctor did some blood tests and my PSA was 112. Both him and I nearly had a heart attack.

    4 years later PSA down to 0.04 and have annual checks now.

    Best of luck to all.

    Likewise, I had no symptoms at all. Perhaps because we caught it early enough, but generally yes, if you have to urinate more frequently (specifically during the night) and your flow is not what it used to be, have it checked out ASAP.

    My PSA tests climbed steadily from 4.1 to 7 over a period of three years and the Urologist suggested a Brachy at that stage. It is now at 0.1 as of December last year.

    The first time my dad's was diagnosed was in 1994, he is still going strong, it spread to his lower vertebrae and he got radiation therapy, all clean, last year it spread to his, femur, hip and shoulder, started with chemo, that did not have the desired effect and his oncologist put him on some other treatment that seems to do the trick. He is 75 and going like a boeing....

    My dad was tested every 6 months after a bladder infection over two years ago,he did the blood and DRE and only the PSA showed a slight inconsistency ,sometimes low,sometimes a little higher. This prompted the doctor this past december to do a biopsy,he said PSA levels should be consistent.

    PSA and DRE should both be done,but it goes to show that even the DRE can miss it,which is the case with my dad,but i guess they will eventually feel it,thats why early detection is so important. 6 months ago it was fine and then this december the PSA was the one that showed he needed a biopsy,due to all his previous PSA tests not being consistent.

    If you feel symptoms it usually is more advanced already,hence why you should do your annual tests to detect it early. My dad had no symptoms.

    Have the test done but like my father I have also small growth. Harmless. Sample was taken. Father was taking snow from the roof when he had to be taken to hospital. Piping blocked because of the growth. Still walking around, 88 this year.

    In my case urologist has this "electric chair" for flow measurement. Last verdict was: "When too many times during night we will talk about lazer cut". Not in a near future.

    So low flow can be harmless but check!

    My dad was also diagnosed in September. Cancer has spread due to not wanting to go for a screening in 4 years.
    Not much they can do for him now.

    I am booked for the 24th for mine, has gotten me worried.
