Prostate cancer (or not)?

December 22, 2015

Barring any changes, on December 22, 2015, I’ll find out if I have prostate cancer, or not.

Update: I found out today that I do not have prostate cancer. There are several issues with the prostate including it being twice as large as normal (a trait my dad had as well), having prostate stones (calcification), a cyst, and an unusual shape that interferes with the flow of urine from one kidney, but cancer is not there.

I talked to my urologist about having one or more surgerical procedures on the prostate to alleviate some of the problems, but unfortunately my body has (rapidly) moved to Stage III Chronic Kidney Disease, and there are some liver issues as well, so he doesn’t want to operate until those issues are resolved.
