    And for fairly good reason, much like mammography, the false positives tend to outweigh the benefit. I suspect that you could ask for a manual exam, if you felt concerned! Colonoscopies are standard here for all over 50s. I see the NHS doesn't start screening until people are in their 60s. I'd be more concerned about that tbh, prostate cancers are *usually* pretty slow growing.

    yup... at 50 they break out the 8 ft garden hose here too, though if you have bowel changes they will probe you much earlier... The best part of the whole colonoscopy thing is the drugs..... hell-to-the-yeah! The prep is the worst part.... <shudder>

    ohhhh.... a curry bacon and egg dish.... the trifecta!
    TMI moment here, I did have a rectal exam once, when I done a disc in me back, cuz it was the disc where the nerves that control bowel function float about, I can give that away again, I can tell ee....

    Boiled eggs in a curry are the kippers tits, not tried bacon yet, but oh yes....

    As well as slow growing, I think I read somewhere virtually guaranteed as well, something else not to look forward to!

    Pretty much prostate cancer risk increases to the 90% range by the age of 90 or so.... kinda like breast cancer for women....

    I think prostate cancer is one you'll most likely live through if you get your exams (Not the 40 foot anal probe!). The guys who die from it are those folks that think if you ignore something, it will go away. This only works with spouses. If your prostate is swollen like a freakin' Idaho potato, it's not going to go away.

    Had a sit-down with the resturant guy..... to discuss fall veggies... He gave me a list of things he wants, and most of them I can grow if I start yesterday, some it is about a month to late to start. So it looks like I may be trying my hand at winter market gardening..... Time to buy a bunch of seed for mizuna, tatzoi, radish and the like....

    I have recently discovered them.... have been growing bok choy and napa cabbage for the last 2 years and the mizuna and tatzoi are in a greens mix I have for salad greens..... Pretty fast growing stuff, can be harvested more than once from the same planting and tasty! I get seed catalogs from several companies but routinely buy from only one of them. Their seed seems to be better, a little pricier, but better quality.
