I'm here because I'm very worried about my husband. He's had urinary symptoms of enlarged prostate for about 2 years and refused to get it checked out. Now, he ticks every single symptom for enlarged prostate AND some for cancer (bloody discharge, ache in the pelvis when sitting, etc). What's frustrating is that he can't see his GP for another 10 days and God knows how long until all other tests and referrals will go through.
I'm looking for someone to say "it's not cancer", I'll take any diagnosis - infection, cysts, stones, just not the dreaded C.
I'm trying to comfort myself with the idea that he's only 38, white, and with no family history, however there is recent study that showed tall overweight men have a much higher risk for aggressive prostate cancer, add that to all the symptoms he's having and and the fact he didn't really take a good care of his health for many years and you get a wife in a state of panic!
I know none of you are doctors and don't have a crystall ball, but please - any hope that this could be something else?
