Now that's funny-- NOT-- Freddy, the nurse practitioner that usually does the old finger check is 5' tall with small hands--if just the Doc comes in, whole different story :shock: Just to add--he does a sonogram every couple yrs-at one point, I also was up a couple times per night--not for the past couple yrs though??? No meds or anything else to date--knock on woody :oops2: I mean wood.

You got that right! My Dr "doesn't believe" in PSA tests. "They give too many false results". Yaaa, well, Doc, Until a better test comes along, this Fred will be getting a PSA each year. So, each year I have to remind her. Sheesh! She's got short fingers too. But....she's better than the last Dr I had!

Greg & Yanche....thanks for the info.

And that folks is why I can never move to New York. I'm afraid I'd pull over to pee behind a tree & find it already occupied. I can't make it through a movie! Strangely, during the day I can go 5 or 6 hours without pee'n, but at night I'm up every 2 or 3 hours.


Just don't offer to shake and you will be alright. :D

All men age 50 or older should have the Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Test every year. It's a very sensitive test which can be influenced by your state of health or the drugs you are taking. It alone does not confirm you have prostate cancer. It's only a marker for its possibility. A lot more info is here:

http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/fact ... ection/PSA

It's a safe non-invasive test. THE ONLY EXCUSE FOR NOT GETTING ONE ANNUALLY IS STUPIDITY.

Keep a record of your yearly PSA values. Plot them on a graph and watch the trend.

I didn't use those exact words with my Dr when she told me that she doesn't do them anymore, but, I made it perfectly clear that I'm getting one each year.


Once at a motorcycle event a bunch of us started working on a bike, I put on latex gloves. One person seemed amazed that I had them & asked where I got them. I said "Each year I ask the Dr. to go bare handed so I can keep the gloves". The group went "Ewwwwwww".

This thread now reminds me of the "Doctor" (Jack Elam) from Smokey and the Bandit. He turns, sticks up his middle finger and asks "Where's the patient???" toothy

Edit: make that Cannon Ball run.
