I just had my two and one half year PSA. Still <0.1 turn
I can breath another sigh of relief. I know I should not get anxious
each time but it is easier said than done.
Keeping my PSA low is my only concern since my continence is good
and natural erections great.
The zero club is one I want to stay in !!!
