The dreaded Annual Exam

This will be an update for some, and an announcement of sorts for others. Although there is no concrete news to share, I want to let you know what’s going on.

I had my annual prostate exam a couple weeks ago and the numbers were a little high, and they were a little higher than last year, so the doctor said to get a second opinion. The second opinion said to get a biopsy.

I had an ultrasound and biopsy today. It was a bit like a visit to the dentist, only the chair was different. It will be a few days before the results are in, so this is all I have to share. Before today, the doctor predicted my diagnosis would fall somewhere between, “It’s Nothing” and, “Certain Death.” Today after the closer inspection, he sharpened that prediction to a 60% chance of having prostate cancer.

Until later,

Scott
