If you are 40 or older, you need a baseline prostate exam and psa to check for prostate cancer.


Once you know that you are not “one in a thousand” that has the very aggressive form of prostate cancer at a young age, you can then can do the screening every two years or so. That’s reasonable enough is it not Mr. Brawley? They recommend colonoscopies that way. Don’t that ole prostate deserve some respect like the colon and breast get?

  1. I wanted to really thank you for your Prostate Diaries. My father died of prostate cancer 6 years ago at the age of 77 although he was diagnosed at the age of 57. I am now 58 and getting regular PSA and DREs and so far I’m ok. Your honest accounts are a real inspiration to me and thousands of others. Many thanks . John Suffolk UK

  2. PSA may be considered redundant but if you are that man with aggressive prostate cancer you are SO grateful that you had it done as you live and that counts the most.
