Age at Diagnosis:
Brief outline:Diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1999, prostatectomy in 1999.
I was down at my local GPs and they were doing a survey on prostate cancer. I went along, had some blood tests, and after a week or two, after the blood test I was told I had a high PSA.
Before I had my PSA test I wasn't given that much information. I just went along and they took several blood samples and I was told that I would be, I would get the information within about approximately a week which I did.
But would you have liked to have had more information about the implications of the results of the test before you had it done? Do you think you needed more information before you had the test done?
I didn't think I needed any more information on the test as I had no problems with my waterworks in the start. I was, I'd been quite a healthy person, I get backache like most people when they get to my age but I've had no trouble with my waterworks at all.
