Treated 1999 · Posted 2003
“I feel like my guardian angel has been looking after me during the whole procedure.”
On February 9, 1999 I had my annual checkup and was told everything looked good except for my PSA, which was 5.9. My family doctor referred me to a urologist who said my prostate felt fine - no lumps or bumps, but to be on the safe side I should have a biopsy. Bad news. The biopsy showed cancer.
He talked to my wife and me for about an hour regarding my different options for treatment. None of them were Proton beam!
