My husband's elder son is 35. He had a baseline PSA about
2 years ago, but does not disclose it. He is happy with it, whatever it is. He's a very private person but we keep the lines of communication
open, and he has all the facts of his dad who was diagnosed at 49 - low amount and contained, but several small tumors and Gleeson 7. No symptoms and no family history. This son has 2 little girls and has completed his family he says. This year his dad (my husband) will have another chat, as they always have an annual chat about
PSA, and he reassures my hubby that he is fine. So we walk side-by-side with the 35- year-old.
The son we share together is only 12 years old, but has lived with the knowledge that his dad had Pca since he was 6. He is not freaked out by it, but for the moment we just stress healthy diet to stay healthy, and have not gone into details of his risk, other than saying that as a boy and man, it is really important for his to keep his prostate healthy and checked like dad when he is older in case there was ever a problem. It does worry me a little that the 12-year-old won't eat tomatoes! But I guess that's a rather mute point really! Next week it is 6 years since my husband was diagnosed on his 49th birthday. We are grateful that he has had such a good outcome to now. Hope this helps, 81 Gy and that you are doing well. cheers.
