Great and glad everything worked out well. This is a great example of why PSA screening can and does save lives.

I went to my Urologist in April and my PSA was .95. Yes, less than one. But he said that he felt something and my prostatitis symptoms were not going away with Cipro. He said it's biopsy time and I had stage 2 prostate cancer. I also had the Radical Prostatectomy. The point here is that one can not go by a PSA only. Have the EXAM....!!!!

That is great advice Chuck. Too many guys I know are more than willing to ignore the symptoms. I'd even recommend taking prostate supplements like I've read in Super Beta Prostate reviews to help develop a healthy prostate.
