Movember #4: My Appointment

Sorry for the delay in writing this post.  I've had some trouble getting an appointment with my Family Doctor that fits in with my schedule.

The anticipation of what may be ahead of me wasn't the best.  I mean, who wants a prostate exam?  When I entered the room and explained the purpose of my visit, my Doctor asked if I had any symptoms.  Since I did not have symptoms, and I am only 29, she ordered a PSA but did not do a digital prostate exam.  She explained that unless one has symptoms, only those over 50 require regular prostate exams.  My initial thought was "But....I told everyone on my blog I would get one!".  But, after thinking about it, I decided it would be a bit awkward to insist on an exam against the advice of my Doctor. The good news is, my PSA levels are fine.

I hope you've found these blog posts helpful.  If you ever have any questions or concerns about your prostate, please consult your Medical Doctor.
