We've just had this in by email from a regular ARRSE user who asked that I share it with you all
Hear hear, and don't forget that its young lads (20s-40s) that are more susceptible to testicular cance. Just as you're out of one high risk zone you're into another!
My doctor's a stunner and the locum GP is her sister.
To have birds like that put their finger up my bum for non-medical reasons would be seriously expensive...
I have quite a few of the symptoms that are mentioned and got myself down tol the Doc for a check up. After just about draining my arm to fill up various test tubes I was sent off for x-rays also.
End result in my case was OK and the tests and x-rays were well within the norm for my age. He did offer me the internal examination and camera up the bum if I wanted but he felt that it was not necessary - I agreed! However, the tests are done and I can sleep better without worrying about the reason for needing a pee at 2 am and 4 am -I just go!
Anyone who is too embarrassed is just taking chances with their lives. If you have the slightest doubt or suspicion - get it checked out. That is one of the reasons that GPs are paid 6 figure sums. They have heard it all before, and if you are really lucky you will get a nice young female Dr (or for Jarrod male). Mind you, all the doctors look young nowadays!
Edit to add thanks to the person that contacted BCO and I hope things go well for you.
Worse still you may even get Jarrod!!
Depends where you live, Old Boy, depends where you live......
I heard daily masturbation can help combat prostate cancer.
Buggers your eyesight though
I recently had blood in my piss, went along to the quack, he sent me straight up to see a urologist, sent me for a CT scan. Upshot was bladder cancer. Tumour removed within a few days, I had a check up 3 months later, 2 new tumours, these also removed and 6, weekly, sessions of chemo followed. All done as day patient or overnight stay for the surgery all done via a (extra long) catheter up my knob; no scars. Just had another 3 month check up all clear, back at 3 month intervals for the first year then annually for the next 6 years.
A bit worrying at first but all in all worth the initial visit to the GP. If in doubt go and see the doc; you have nothing to lose.

That's better. I can read that...
I've had two resections done on my prostrate to improve the the flow. It does leave you a bit tender and the results are not instantaneous but it is well worth the hassle. If any of you have the symptoms do yourself and your family a favour and get it checked out asap.
Also any fresh blood in urine or sperm get checked out.

Interesting use of the words "fresh" blood. Care to explain a bit further for those of us who don't know about medical things?
Fresh= just started. ie red or not coagulating
In urine or semen you see thin streaks/threads of red
Separate names with a comma.
