    Still get tested. Start in your 40s. Dont let the damn dr talk you out of it.

    They dont know what the fuck causes PCa. It feeds on testosterone, yet you get it at a stage of life when your testosterone levels are falling. Go figure.

    Just get tested. It's only a blood test. Catch it early and it's a piece o' cake....catch it late, and it's hell on earth.

    A PSA blood test, for prostate-specific antigen, a protein that appears in the blood of men with certain types of prostate problems, including cancer.

    http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Detection/PSA

    Another common test for prostate problems is a DRE (digital rectal exam), in which the doctor checks the prostate directly with a finger in the rectum for enlargement, firmness and tenderness.

    Some men also believe prostate massage is beneficial to prostate health. Lots and lots and lots of massage. Curiously, most of these men reside in the gay community.

    (OK, I made that last part up. icon_wink.gif )

    I don't have the current link, but health/medical studies have also led to strong indications that ejaculating 5 times a week or more (no limit, of course....heheh) helps maintain prostate health! Go for it!

    I think it was something about keeping the plumbing operational and functioning well, "changing the oil", whatevah....icon_lol.gif but seriously

    35 years of lifting. PSA is 0.4. Cholesterol is 130. Numbers don't lie. Exercise and HRT WORKS. Oh, yeah, and regular masturbation. You don't want to get behind....gotta' keep the pipes flowing.

    The most recent research indicates that the growth of prostate cancer is much more affected by the rising estrogen level of older men that by testosterone. The testosterone theory is a medical myth that doctors keep relying on because they don't know any better and are too lazy to educate themselves. Low testosterone is dangerous. It causes or contributes to sexual dysfunction, bone loss, increased risk of heart disease, depression, and the decline of mental acuity. Older men should receive hormone replacement to keep their testosterone level high. And!!!! they should be treated for excess estrogen. Now, if you're an older guy (over 50 or so) go try to find a doc who will prescribe a med to keep your estrogen level down. Or one who will even agree to go an estrogen level test. Good luck and pack a lunch. It's going to take you a long time.

    I buy arimidex over the net. It's a prescription med, and when taken by men in very small doses it controls estrogen . I buy it with no prescription because I can't get a doc to prescribe it.

    I'm 51. I shoot up testosterone once per week and I take arimidex. My testosterone level is that of a guy in his 20's. My psa is 1.2. My prostate is very healthy.

    Gawd I hate doctors.

    End of rant. Thanks, I feel much better now.

    I always hear about HRT for post-menopausal women. Not so much for men. Well atleast on tv or internet. How old were you when you started HRT? Did you just have your hormones tested?

    Being a vegetarian lowers the risk of getting prostate cancer as well. icon_biggrin.gif
    Don't forget your pumpkin seed oil, flax seed and flax seed oil, and saw palmetto.
