I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in September 2014 at the age of 47. It runs in my family so I started having a psa age 40. My resent numbers are good and there was no change in my September 2015 biopsy. They all wanted me to have a radical prostectomy due to my family history, but my wife and I opted to go with active surveillance. I am struggling with knowing it's there and not dueing anything about it, my doctors say I am just delaying the inevitable. I would like to be in touch with someone who has gone through this at my age, I will be 50 next month and am considering treatment ( just not sure what) . If you have prostate cancer and have sons, please encourage them to have a psa.
