Great news gedman!
Agree with you on the PSA test guidelines. We've seen plenty of guys here with PCa before the "magic" age of 50 and even at 50 some doctors seem to shy away from PSA tests. Like you, I received blood tests every year as part of an annual physical. During my annual meeting with my doctor at age 50 I asked about what I knew regarding reaching 50. Regarding the first colonoscopy my doctor agreed and said they would schedule it for me. When I asked about the PSA test, my doctor asked me if I had any history of prostate cancer in my family. When I told him "no", he said that I didn't really need a PSA test then. I asked what the PSA test entailed and he explained it was a just a blood test. I said since I'm getting blood drawn for my annual blood tests anyway, why not do the PSA? We did, and sure enough, mine was high and led to finding my PCa.
