Although my husband had no problems, I nagged him to get a PSA test done as a precaution. The test came back a little high 4.65, and he was referred to HO hospital. He was monitored for a year with the PSA levels decreasing. The consultant decided the levels were not coming down fast enough and he was referred for a biopsy. This detected cancer. Initially it was proposed that the treatment would be to insert radio-active pellets into the prostate to kill the cancer. However, a MRI showed the cancer was in both sides of the prostate. Radiotherapy or surgical removal were the two options. My husband opted for surgery. Now he is cancer free though being monitored regularly. I cannot stress enough, how important it is for you guys to get checked regularly even if you do not have any symptoms.
