    Radiation: Radiation was the most humiliating experience of my whole ordeal. I don't know if it has changed much
    but they stick this tube up your rectum and blow up a small balloon. It is very unpleasant and I swear that it seems like every nock down, gorgeous, intern is staring at your a**. They even invite friends,
    family, etc. and you are on display.(Just Kidding.) It just seems that way. 45 days is a long time and it seems like their equipment is always breaking down. It sucked.

    Decision Point (I had a complete removal of my prostate): I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 43. My psa level at the time was 9.34. I was told to get to
    a Urologist ASAP after a routine physical exam. I was overwhelmed since it was the first time that I
    ever had a psa test. My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 65. I was told to get
    checked at the age of 40. The bad part about it is that the doctors told me that they figured that my
    cancer was at least 5 years old. Unbelievable. We are talking age 38. I always considered it to be
    an "Old Mans Disease". I was wrong and have two sons that will now get checked at the age of 30.
