Transcript of Glen Sather’s Prostate Cancer Story
Hi I’m Glen Sater and this is my story about being a prostate cancer survivor. About fifteen months ago, I had a PSA test, and it was abnormally high. So, the next step was that I went in and had a biopsy, which was, I had seven spots on my prostate gland that had been infected. And I did something that was probably a little radical, but I had it removed.
I think it was the best thing I could have done in my life other than having the PSA test. I think there are a lot of men out there today that need to follow up with the their PSA, to get checked, and get screened, to find out if it’s early detection. The early the better and you should certainly be tested regularly, every six or seven months, especially when you get older.
I’m seventy-one now, and I had the PSA test every year for the last fifteen years. The last three or four years it started to go up. And the earlier testing you can get, the better off you’re going to be.
So, what I recommend to you is take care of yourself, take care of your health, and make sure you get screened.
