I need some help to try and get my husband to the Dr. These are the symptoms he's exhibiting: frequent urination, occasional blood in semen, painful in groin area on both sides of testicles, back pain, and swelling in lower extremities. He looks really bad. He travels a lot and I could see a big decline in his appearance since I just saw him 10 days ago. He's very tired. He has trouble remembering things he I'd just a few hours ago. My fear is he has advanced prostate cancer but he's working on a large project and says he'll go to Dr when it's complete. HELP!!

Can someone please answer these questions for me? Where is the Dr on here when you need him? Husband is still having severe back pain, blood in his semen, and difficulty at times urinating. Has anyone else experienced this and what was diagnosis?

I am sorry, but the doctor only drops by every month or so.

And no one can give a diagnoses based on the information that you gave.

But, whatever the problem is, your husband has serious symptoms that needs to be seen by a doctor.

Thank you for the suggestions. I'm just worried about the severity of his symptoms and hope I can get him to the doctor soon. I'm just worried with these symptoms he possibly has advanced stage cancer. But thanks for the support.

Were you able to get your husband to consult a doctor? He is one stubborn guy. He probably endures a whole lot of discomforts and pain in his situation, but he still refuses to heed the signs. Well, you could try getting him to use a DIY test kit like Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) Blood Spot Test Kit of ZRT, which can determine the level of PSA in his system. A high level of PSA indicates Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or enlargement of the prostate gland, or even prostate cancer. He could take the kit with him wherever he goes, and test at his time of convenience. Although, a doctor's consultation would be the better option. But, hopefully when he sees the result on the little test kit, it will encourage him to go seek a doctor's opinion. Don't give up trying and always be strong for him.

I am sorry about your husband. Only a doctor can give him a complete diagnosis. He should be become willing to be physically checked by a doctor and undergo some tests to know what he is really having right now.
