I just did a web search and found what I was looking for.  Should have done that first!  Duh!

I remember last year seeing some guys on TV who didn't shave for a month as part of a prostate cancer awareness program.  Does anybody remember the details of this?  I think it was in the fall, and it might be a good thing for me to try this year.  Thank you.

I am 32 had emergency brain surgery and spinal surgery this year. Went to the doctor today 12/23/2013, he did a prostate exam and thinks I have prostate cancer. Did blood work and urine tests. Now to follow up with a specialist this has been a whirl wind of a year.

I was diagnosed with PCa in 2000 and had a radical prostatectomy (I was 51). I have overcome the side effects and am willing to talk with anyone about this subject.

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer when I was 51. It is recommended that men have a yearly digital rectal exam (DRE) beginning at age 40 and PSA testing (blood test) beginning at 50. If PC runs in the family you should inform your doctor and start the PSA at age 40. Early detection is key to a positive prognosis.
