Ok heres the scoop; I started at 42 because my Dr was an old school Dr and I went in for yearly checkups and he would do the digital and as part of my blood work the psa.
I have NO history of cancer in my family other than an aunt that had lung cancer form the 5 million cigs she smoked. Mother is 81, healthy but hi blood pressure..2 older Bros, both healthy, i younger Bro and a younger sister.
I forgot what size my uro said my prostate was but I just had what he thinks was a uti or prostititus and I mentioned my enlarged prostate and he said " it isnt huge by any means"
I got my first colonoscpy at 45 due to having cdiff, and my second at 50. I get all my moles checked every year. I am a white male, 5'9" tall and weigh 142 pounds. I run 4 - 5 miles a day or bike 20 - 40 miles on the off days. My HDL is 102 my LDL is 72..I eat healthy, lots of fsh and salads. Not a big meat eater and when I do its usually venison.
So thas my story....I do get keyed up nd remember when my psa jumped from .98 to 1.01 I was having a fit, lucky my uro explained to me it was the same number as far as he was concerned..
