“I went to see an internist due to blood in my urine. I then was referred to a urologist for assessment. While determining that the cause was a fairly large kidney stone, he also did a physical prostate exam. Despite the fact that my Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) was below average, he detected nodes in the gland. Subsequent, the biopsy proved positive and I opted for a prostatectomy over radiation. Fortunately, it had not spread beyond prostate.”
Joe is very grateful to have his full health today, and he offers advice for other men:
“My lessons: PSA levels can be unreliable as a marker, and I would recommend having a urologist perform the prostate exam.”
