question:if early on prostate cancer has no symptoms,then how do you make the diagnosis. Answer: think breasts?


This was a question to a podcast on podbean and it is a good yet very simple question. The essence of which is lost on most men who’s fear of a rectal exam outweighs the benefits of early detection.

If you told a women to have a breast exam or mamogram and they answered, ” But my breasts don’t hurt. I am having no problem with my breasts.”

Would everyone then say, “Well okay, you’re good.”

So the answer to the question is to just encorporate into the male’s yearly exam with his family doctor once a year or so a rectal exam and PSA.

Then….forgettaboutit…..
