    Is a topic on the ‘prostate’ okay, too personal, or taboo? Some of us may (eventually) have to face up to this issue.

    Not a problem for me Pat, it is because we Men can't/don't talk about these things that our problems get worse, Mine is steady getting worse although I am keeping it checked out but it is still a worry

    I put 'prostate' in the search box - you didn't do the very common 'prostrate'?

    Jack, I am like you and most seniors here. My PSA advancing with age. I haven’t seen Dave for about a year. I met him 10 years ago right after he arrived and he told me about his cancer and was planning on riding it our. Last time I saw him he looked as handsome as ever. I agree with Dave, the risks of prostate removal, from what I am researching and hearing are disturbing, particularly if done here. I need 10 more years to get my son in college but not planning on the surgery if or when it becomes cancer. I saw my SMC doctor again today and he told me to get another PSA test in 3 months.

    I see, on mims.com, a description of Terazosin as replacement for Tamsulosin as symptomatic treatment for prostatitis. Has anyone had it prescribed for himself?
