Cancer story addition

Thank you for the informative article regarding prostate cancer. I would add one more bit of information. I was diagnosed with an aggresive cancer where 6 of 8 biopsy samples were cancerous. I had no symptoms, no urinary problems, and my PSA blood test did not indicate cancer. It was only the routine physical with rectal exam which detected the tumor. PSA blood test alone is sometimes not enough. It is not a pleasant exam, but sometimes it is the difference between life and death. Thanks to Judge Bryan for sharing his dilema and insight.
