In line with the girls current topic of "Pap Smears" by PeachyPearl, here is the equally unpleasant male version.


So guys, have you had it on your calendars for those of the recommended age of regular checks?


Do you put it off?


I'm well overdue but have it down for this winter for a full check and skin cancer check.


I'm partial to a bit of anal action but the docs is totally different.


Let's hear your thoughts. Lives are at stake and if we can prompt a few checkups, it might just save someone.

Lol

Had one a few years ago after a scare (pain accompanied by blood in the urine). The doctor had huge knuckles and I was terrified, but it turns out prostate checks are normally done by ultrasound these days - not subjective and more accurate. That was quite a relief (as was the diagnosis - nothing wrong, just a larger-than-usual crystal of uric acid scraping a path down the urethra)!

I make sure to drink plenty these days. Sometimes even non-alcoholic...

Yes there is a non invasive test now that is less subjective.

On the Open range...

You had one a few years ago......

Regular checkups should be considered after 40 and definitely after 50. Perhaps being 47, you should be due. And another one when fifty?



Just saying.......

While at the GP,

get the referral for a full health check. Do it at your local hospital path lab and it is free.

What happens in the docs room.......does it really happen if there is no one to see it?
It takes seconds.
If it's a big no, then the scan is non invasive. You owe it to yourself?

Men's cancer

Great Topic!

IMO, there's not enough support for men in the community. 😕

Yes, I am doing/organising another charity bike ride this year in support for men's cancer. Last year there was over 125 bikes! This year hoping for double that. So that means more $ towards cancer research.

Like last years charity ride, there were doctors/nurses checking riders out for free skin checks. Will be doing again this year too.

Good point, Annie. I've got to see the doc soon anyway, so I'll be sure to discuss it with him.

Cheers! :)

Simple blood test

Mr D has a simple PSA (Prostate specific antigen) blood test done once a year. Completely non invasive.

Colonoscopy time for me.....

Lost my Father to Bowel cancer when he was still reasonably young, Dr’s have said 45 is the magic age that I should start getting regular checks so I’m planning to do as he says.



May be uncomfortable but sure as hell beats the pain and suffering that can be avoided by a quick test.

Great topic, Annie

Guys, you don't have to have a finger up your bum anymore, you can get a simple blood test!

From the cancer.org website April 2018:

"The cause of prostate cancer is not known and there is no single, simple test to detect prostate cancer. Prostate cancer may be suspected if a blood test to check your prostate specific antigen (PSA) is above normal levels for your age."

"The PSA test measures the level of PSA in your blood. It does not specifically test for cancer. Virtually all PSA is produced by the prostate gland. The normal range depends on your age. A PSA above the typical range may indicate the possibility of prostate cancer.

However, two thirds of cases of elevated PSA are due to non­cancerous conditions such as prostatitis and BPH. If either of these tests suggest an abnormality, other tests are necessary to confirm a diagnosis of prostate cancer, usually a trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) and biopsy."

Also:

"What are the prostate cancer symptoms I need to look out for?

In its early stages, prostate cancer may not show any symptoms. Symptoms of early prostate cancer can include:

difficulty passing urine
a slow, interrupted flow of urine
frequent passing of urine, including at night
incontinence.

Symptoms associated with advanced prostate cancer include:

blood in urine
pain during urination
lower back or pelvic pain.
These symptoms are also found in men who may have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a common, non­-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. I

f you experience these symptoms, visit your doctor."


Please get checked fellas, especially if you have any of the above symptoms.

Perform a death defying act, get a check up...

I was advised not to ride a bicycle or to have an ejaculation for 48 hours before my last blood test because this can lead to a false positive result. Previously after a blood test I remarked about the Doctor not needing the rubber gloves, he said maybe we should check it out anyway, turns out there was some enlargement of the prostate. So both the blood test and the DRE have their place.

PSA TEST

Annie,
I've been having prostrate tests since mid forties.
PSA blood test just requires a fast beforehand as I recall and a blood sample.
I'm happy to watch the blood being drawn. Some people might prefer the twang of rubber gloves ;-)

Why do today what you can put of til tomorrow?

I'll get around to it sometime. Put it this way, in the tropics you drink water all day every day, and the water exits me just as easily as I drink it. Plus, whenever I microwave something I shove my groin up against the microwave to cop some rays down yonder. Seems to be working so far.
