    My Dad goes in March 12 for another consult on his prostate. His PSA was ok I believe, but was diagnosed with prostate cancer with a DRE with a colonoscopy follow up.

    My father got a DRE and that confirmed his cancer. He will be seeking radioactive seed treatment. He is 82 and very active. Myself I go in Thursday for info on seed treatment. Made up my mind that is the way to go-there are just variations of it.
    weatherweenie don't forget when you have your physicals be proactive since you have history of prostate cancer in your family.

    Have had a couple DRE's myself, inspite of being in my late 30s.

    Fortunately the doc with the 2" wide fingers has retired.

    I'm sure your father would not qualify for prostate surgery at his age, if it was needed. So, I hope the seeds work.

    Do you know if the cancer was contained within the prostate?

    I hope it was.

    Yes my fathers cancer was contained. I know they did a scan on him. I suppoose they will do that for me for whatever procedure I select. I will have more details Thursday. I was really surprised the different ways they can treat prostate cancer. In the old days when they didn't have PSA tests I suppose they had more advanced cases and your selection was limited.
    I'm not happy what I have-but I am glad I found it early.

    I didn't hear anything positive about surgury to remove the prostate from 2 people I talked to.
    Your right about his age.

    My Dad's surgery was successful b/c it was contained.

    I guess I should elaborate- the 2 people I talked to had some erectal dysfunction and incontinences (sp?) after removal of the prostate.. They have had no cancer reoccurrence. They were younger then 60.

    My Dad will have prostate surgery at a clinic in Indianapolis on April 19th.

    From what I understand, the prognosis is good.

    They have made great advancements in the surgery procedures over the years. Most of us men will have prostate problems as we age. Good luck to you and your dad. I know my doctor has wanted me to have laser surgery, my prostate is enlarged, no cancer. I take vitamins and supplements to see if it can be reduced, or wait for surgery to improve.
