Welcome to HW, Steve. Sorry you have to be here, but there's comfort in
finding many others in the same boat, so to speak.
A question for you. You are speaking of 'nodule' and the doc not detecting them/it. Are you speaking of the prostate itself, or the cancer lumps that can be detected occasionally by the digital rectal exam? Is this DRE and nodule detection your first warning, or did they test PSA at the health screening? I'm curious, as I never had anything detected digitally, it was all PSA results for me.
