Summer is right around the corner!

Summer is right around the corner and that means sun and fun for most of the US. We'll be lighting the barbecue soon for the 4th of July. Chances are you'll be around a large crowd of people and what better time to promote prostate health than at a backyard party! If you're neighbors are anything like mine they'll tell you "everything" that is going on with the people living around you so why not share your new found love for prostate health with them. A simple question like,"Have you had a prostate exam lately?" can break the ice and provide a moment to laugh before starting a conversation.
It's a fact that some men are afraid to go to the doctor for routine check ups so encourage your male friends and family members to stay healthy now before minor issues turn into major problems.

New Years Resolutions

Many of us have forgotten our New Years Resolutions while some of us are still maintaining our lofty goals! Personally I am working on maintaining and improving my health overall for 2008 and beyond. Of course prostate health is vitally important to me and so is keeping a high level of cardio fitness through bicycle racing. You don't need to take things to extremes like I do but you can do a few things daily to help you.

  • Eat healthy everyday - sounds hard to do but it can be maintained if you make it a habit.

  • Exercise 3 times a week.

  • Take a 15 minute walk at lunch time or after dinner.


The www is a valuable resource for finding recipes and ways to stay fit even as we age. A few quick searches for keywords like healthy recipes or fitness can yield many helpful websites. Take a look around and you'll find a vast amount of information that can and will help you stay in shape and enjoy life.

News: Prostate Test Flaws Prompt New Strategy

Every year, millions of men are screened for prostate cancer with PSA tests – blood tests that measure levels of the protein prostate-specific antigen. Higher PSA levels, especially above 4 nanograms per milliliter of blood, are used to indicate cancer and send men for prostate biopsies.

However, a study of 1,607 prostate biopsies done at New York Presbyterian Hospital from 1993 to 2005 found that PSA scores no longer predict cancer in men whose prostates feel normal to a doctor. Dr. Douglas Scherr, who led the study, noted that they are seeing that the "prostate cancer detection rate has remained the same over time; roughly 30 percent of biopsies find cancer." Dr. Scherr added that they are seeing new urine-based tests, one is called PCA3.

He highly recommends a digital rectal exam to check for cancer. He was undecided whether or not a prostate biopsy test could be our next major screening tool, much the same as colonoscopy is now.

Your health

If you're into your health (and who shouldn't be?!?) it is wise to discuss with your doctor any signs or symptoms you may have. You never know if just one doctor visit can be the one that saves your life.

Staying healthy and fit as we age is vitally important. Drop a few pounds and see how great you feel. Good weather is coming up soon so start on a plan to improve your health in 2008. I personally lost 35 lbs two years ago and have kept it off. If I can do it, you can do it, believe me!!!
