I’m not hating on you. Just that I’m not sure there’s anything better right now and if someone has family history they don’t need anybody telling them not to get checked. The gal in the first video said if you have family history it’s different- but she brushed over it pretty quickly. My Granddad and Dad had prostate cancer but it didn’t cause their deaths although Dad didn’t find his until later. He had 2 biopsies that didn’t find it but the third one did. He had a prostatectomy but his psa remained elevated. The cancer had gotten beyond the prostate. He treated it with hormone therapy. He ended up getting colon cancer even though he had regular colonoscopies. Doctors said it wasn’t related to the prostate but I always wondered about it. My psa has been going up and I have an appointment with the urologist next week so will see what develops.
