    MDs making a number of themselves... YES PSA is not the best, but it is necessary. AND a totally healthy man can have a ravaging cancer about to attack and murder him - I know, I did! I requested a PSA test even when I was absolutely symptomless. What the yound MD did not do, was his mistake. The best and simplest, and cheapest test would have been palpating my prostate. I would have been in correct care 6 months earlier. In the six months my prostate had turned extremely agressive (the whole time w/o symptoms) so no matter who tells me that PSA should not be measured is practising bad medicine. I, too, almost became a statistical number. a victim fallen to prostate cancer... lucky I demanded an operation that was successful.
