Worried to say the least.

I went to the doctors today because my waterworks are weird.

Peeing quite frequently.
Sometimes with a bit of a burning sensation.

Its also a funny colour,light olive green.

I also suffer from back lower back pain as well.

Im also tired all the time.
Usually nod off around 2pm.

Had a prostate examination today and its enlarged.

So you know what im thinking.

Been upset all day.

Dont know if im overreacting or not.

Had my blood and urine test today.

From what you have said and from what I know, your problems/issues could be anything. You are very young to have PC. If I had to put my money on it I'd bet it was something other than PC. What I can tell you is that the deep sick feeling you have in the pit of your stomach from worry WILL GO AWAY and you will deal with whatever it is one step at a time and step by step; I know because I've been there.

So sorry that you are so worried, which is of course understandable. It would be really unwise for any of us to try and guess what the problem is but there are other conditions that can cause your symptoms other than cancer.

When your test results are through you should know what you are facing. There is loads of information and support on this site if you need it. Be sure to keep in touch to let us know how you are getting on.

All the best

Thanks nomad.

Blood and pee tests came back fine but my waterworks are still a bit weird.

We will see the end of the month the the hospital says.

That's great news and now you are more aware of prostate cancer, you will be careful to get regular PSA tests in the future. Stay well!

Great result to finish the year with.
At least you can start off 2018 with a clean sheet which must be a great relief.
Happy New Year 🍸
