In July, I had a mini physical because my PSA had gone up a little when checked in January. Well it went from 4.2 to 7.4 in July so my doctor made an appointment for me to see a urologist. Last Wednesday they took 12 biopsies of the ole prostate to see what was going on. Gave me a nice "huggy" to wear (just in case). Made me look very "macho" from the front but a bit "tushy" from the rear. The good news is that the biopsies were negative! I guess I dodged a bullet, but considering all the prayers being said on my behalf, I'm sure there was Divine intervention as well. Of course I couldn't ride for the rest of the week, couldn't lift anything heavy or take any long trips. I did ride a little Sunday afternoon and again Monday and am starting to get my strength back from the doctor's visit. Hopefully, it will be a long time before my PSA changes again, but I feel that isn't the luck I will be having.

Bernie, I had almost the same experience twice. The biopsies were real low on my favorite things list, but thankfully were all negative. Great to hear your good news!

Yeah that's a worry for a male, they say if you live long enough you will get prostate cancer. I just hope mine was going to happen when I was 125.

Glad to hear about the negative results Bernie, had my biopsy Aug 5th, same thing as yours, 12 samples, waited a week, did some praying, thank God for a Negative result like yours, I take a Men's daily health pill, just basically a multi-vitamin with lycopne, it claims it's good for prostate health, I figure it couldn't hurt.

Been there done that.. Not at all fun.. My urologist said he loves us bikers and bicyclist they keep him in business.. He said long and frequent rides can be a cause of a SLIGHT jump in PSA..
You guys got off easy with 12, try 20 hits...

Man, you would think they could find better ways to determine this stuff.

Now you still have to find out why you were elevated.

Sorry to hear about the concern and hassle to get to this point.

Hope all goes well for you.

I can see it now, custom motorcycle seats will be made with ever larger holes for those who feel the need to brag about what they don't have. Eventually the big liars will be riding on the bare frame to get room for the subject of their obsession.

Thanks everyone! I ordered a special bicycle seat from Canada that eliminated the problem with the bicycle. Now I need to find a "special" seat for the motorcycle!

Really good to hear that you are doing well Bernie. Unfortunately cancer seems to run in my family so I do understand the scare. Great news for you.
