Good looking numbers bbbambi. I'm going in Nov 1 to see my doctor for a general checkup and I'm going to talk to hm about all the latest discussion on prostate cancer screening. I've always tested normal but should something show up in the future, would they proceed with teatment on
this 75 year old man? I understand that at this age, they probably wouldn't do anything. Glad hubby is checking stable.
