Thank you all for the encourgament and the great advise. Finding this wonderful resource really helps one better understand what to expect and eases my concerns.

I have another question and I hope someone can help.

I have a number of symptoms including classic back pain and discomfort in my pubic area, But I am getting this dull pain in my I have a marble in my butt. I'm not sure if this is a symptom or my hemmroids are acting up from the two digital exams I've had. I spoke to my neighbor who has prostate issues but no cancer and he said he gets rectal pain.

Can anyone tell me if this is normal? And if it is my hemmroids will the biopsy cause more problems?

Hi Jack,

I had some rectal pain after the urologists rectals. i think that they explore longer and harder than the GP. (god knows they charge they must think they have to give value!!!).

I was uncomfortable for a while. I also had roids...not a real issue in the scheme of things.
