Late last evening my brother-in-law called to inform me of a positive biopsy. He has had a high and rising PSA for many years and several negative biopsies, so he expected the dx at some point in time. His father died from advanced stage PCa several years ago.
So in my circle of one brother and three brothers-in-law, three of the five have been diagnosed. Quite a nest! He is an engineer and very effective researcher so he is doing a dilligent study of his options. I have encouraged him to check out Healing Well and he has been in a local prostate health support group for some time.
