From a Prostate Cancer Pony Express Rider
Hi, today is 4 weeks since my surgery. This has all happened very fast and pretty much by accident…routine lab work but doctor said “you”re almost 50, let”s include a PSA”.
I’m 49 and on April 24th I recieved the call that my biopsy was positive for cancer. The Big C is a big deal in my family (father, uncles, etc.).
How to ensure you have early warning of prostate cancer
The story above happens more than 240,000 times each year in the United States; a new case of prostate cancer every 131 seconds.
Surviving prostate cancer means catching it early. The best current early warning sign is a rising PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test.
You can create a free PSA tracking account at http://ProstateTracker.org that will remind you by email when your annual test is due and will show you if your PSA number is increasing.
