Annual Prostate checkup!
Guys! Listen up! It’s probably time for all of you somewhat more (ehm) mature men to get your annual PSA ( Prostate-Specific Antigen) check. And/or a digital rectal exam. :eek: Knowing your PSA baseline may be the best indicator of possible prostate issues or problems in the future. There is some division in the medical community about the effectiveness of the test since some men have a PSA level higher than 4 (4 is “normal”) and have no prostate cancer and some men have lower PSA levels and do. Still, keeping an eye, (or finger) on your prostate is a good idea. Go talk to your doctor.
I’m happy to report that my PSA is 0.08, which is very low. ( and in line with previous tests) And my prostate is small and soft. And while it may not guarantee that I don't have prostate cancer, I feel better knowing that my doctor is paying attention.
