Pardon the interruption.
- I'm guessing that most of do not know that September is Prostate
Cancer Awareness Month. I didn't know it until a few days ago myself.
Being diagnosed with prostate cancer teaches you all kinds of new
Guys (and girls go get your guy and make him) put down your keyboards,
fishing poles, golf clubs, whatever for a few minutes and get a blood
test. Have your PSA tested. Don't wait until you're 50. I'm 47, have
prostate cancer and have had it for at least two years (dr estimate).
Now I know there are a lot of young-bucks out there reading this
thinking "I don't need this". Yes you do. One is six men get prostate
cancer - how about those odds? It's best to start young, when you're
most likely to have a PSA value of 0. Don't wait until you're 47 and
your first reading is 7.6. Know and monitor it like you do your blood
sugar and cholesterol levels. What you're looking for is a pattern of
elevation - not a single spike (spikes are normal).
BE AWARE of your own health. Lastly, please don't reply to this -
instead, spend that time marking your calendar to get a PSA test.
