Now that I have my official "Zero Card", I have time to reflect on 'what the hell happened', and more importantly, genetically - what it might mean for the family.
Out of no where, I had a PSA of 5.3, a Testosterone reading of 35, and an Iron/Sat (35/63) level. Ferritin-179
All , raised the concerns for the GP..
I had PC and it was chopped !
So the question - Is there a practical link between the three?
We understand that Cancer might be fed by Testosterone and Iron, so is there a chicken and an egg, or is it all unrelated and uninteresting?
PS - as a result of the IRON issues, I was tested for hereditary Heamachromatosis, and I do have two genes, so the issue surfaced at age 60.
