    A load of questions were asked , ultimately what came out of this was my diet …… when I was about 40 I had a medical for insurance purposes and was almost declined , my cholesterol was above 7.....I went onto statins immediately and changed my diet … however this was not what has changed things ….. It has been put down to pumpkin seed oil …(Believe it or not ) I have a good mate in Slovenia, and he came over one December to escape the snow.... and brought over some Pumpkin seed oil ……. since then I have it on Salads, even ice cream , and every morning I have a table spoon of the stuff....Is this the real reason for all the improvements, I don't know but I aint changing anything . ( I now get a regular supply from him )
    Stay off the Statins ..They are real bad

    Besides all the blood tests and finger probing or scans.

    Are there any physical symptoms that should ring an alarm bell.

    Just thinking about the business opportunity, someone like that will both be the richest and most experienced urologist in the country! She will have more experience on the probe test than anyone else!

    Medical procedures are a funny thing.

    Looked at from the outside or from a distance they carry all these potentially embarrassing interventions.

    But when you are in the bed, and you are more worried about dying than where that finger comes from, its a non event.

    So a year or so ago I need a procedure that requires shaving of the nether region. Something like a Bazillion.

    The nurse says to me. You can shave yourself or I can shave you. If you do it I will just have to do it again properly.

    So she hauls out the gear, dry shave, grabs a paint brush with a beaker of iodine, lifts the man parts, the shaft, oops I meant twig, and bastes everything from shaft to family jewels to the exhaust pipe with iodine. Non event, honestly, I would be more embarrassed asking for a discount at Game.

    ------------------------

    HOWEVER, us macho's have no idea what our beloved wife's and daughters must go through for the numerous female checkups etc.

    I feel for you ladies.

    It doesn't. Prior to the brachy, I had to be examined by an Oncologist, she more than aptly fits your description above. But those dainty little hands and thin fingers were so much more obtrusive than the mealie-fingered Male urologist who referred me to her. Those skinny fingers probe deep and it was not a pleasant experience. But she was very sweet otherwise

    Yes, but not a reliable means at all. I never had any of the symptoms, not a single one, prior to the procedure, Nada!

    These include one or more of the following:

    * Frequent need to urinate
    * weak flow
    * having to get up nightly to urinate
    * Incontinence
    * Family history of prostate problems

    Probably more, but then I never had any of those problems. To be perfectly honest, the highest PSA reading I ever had was due to a bladder infection when it shot up to 14. After antibiotics and a test three months later, it was down to 2.97. But over a period of two years it climbed to just over 7 and that was when I went for the treatment. I still feel it was perhaps not really entirely necessary at that stage but the graph that the Urologist had drawn showed a steady, if slow, increase excluding the peak caused by the bladder infection. I figured go now and get it over and done with. This was at the same time a local lawyer was trying to get Euthanasia legally adopted in SA, he had a particularly advanced case of Prostate Cancer and there was nothing that could be medically done for him. Although his request was granted (if I remember correctly), he passed away before the Court verdict. This is an extremely painful death, so it was a no-brainer to avoid all that.

    In other words, get yourself tested and do not think that you're too young to do so, PC has no respect for youth. Oh, and there's no pain involved other than when they removed the fore and aft plaster...

    Last week mine was 0.10 at last. Almost 4 years after the procedure and it was staying at about 0.5 now both the doctor and myself are very happy. I did have a very rocky road after the brachytherapy with just about every side effect but now hopefully all smooth sailing

    Good to hear, Rob! You & I were in at the same time, I was fortunate in that I never really had any side-effects afterwards but the good Doc did say different folks get different side effects. I had a craving for guavas, which I religiously ate every night as a dessert, then about a year later I was told that was one of the foods that should be avoided so soon after brachy! I did not know that, and I enjoyed them!
